SSSC155 - Happy Anniversary

TGIF Everyone!!  Hope you had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend!  I found some time to play along with the Sweetest Sunday Sketch Challenge # 155.  I REALLY liked this sketch layout!

I grabbed a House Mouse stamp and embossed it on water color paper and once again - used my Distress Inks to color in the image.

Let me tell you about my little banners!   I few weeks ago, my hubby brought home new dish towels from William Sonoma and it had this great cloth ribbon holding them together.  I figured I could re-purpose them!  So I wanted more white on the card.  I stamped three hearts with Distress Inks, cut them into banners and glued them down with glossy accents!  I was proud of myself for recycling :)    I added some dots with a white gel pen and embossed a Hero Arts sentiment in white as well.

I'm getting this in for today's deadline - but here's the sketch anyway!

Have a great day!!!!

Thanks for your visit!
