My Heart Is Yours


 Here's my take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge (#177). It was a tricky sketch for me, but I tried to give it my best! The two hearts are die-cut with Verve's Jotted Heart die, one in felt and one out of some old, old, old red "velvet" Christmas ribbon - the kind you'd use on an outdoor wreath. The sweet sentiment is from Verve's Swirling Hearts set. For the angled panel, I decided to go with a faux pocket and pull-out tag tucked inside. The papers are by The Girls' Paperie (music) and October Afternoon (blue doily).

I kept the pull-out tag simple -- the Kraft label is die-cut with Verve's Vintage Oval die and the ivory embossed oval is die-cut with the Embossed Oval die. The hearts and sentiment are from Love Notes.



Here's the sketch:
