Just Us Girls Challenge #226

Maria is our challenge hostess this week for our sketch challenge at Just Us Girls!  Check out the fun sketch that she has come up with.

We could like to welcome Melissa Hubert as our February Guest Designer!

First I stamped the Stampendous striped belt and buckle on the blue polka dot dp and adhered to the white base.  I die cut the heart with some red striped dp and die cut the white base layer also with the heart.  Stamped the sentiment and added a touch of red glitter to the heart dot of the i.  Added faux stitching around the edge of the heart.  It seemed too plain, so added another little heart with faux stitching.  Looking back, I wish I had used some embossing powder for the belt for more solid coverage.

I made one more covering a chipboard heart with patterned paper and heat embossing the sentiment.  And added a couple strips of polka dot washi tape, a glitter heart and tied with twine.
