I Think I'm in Love!

When I first saw the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! catalog, I fell in love with the stamp set Greeting Card Kids. If you told me I could only order one set this year, I think this would have been it. Isn't this little girl just the cutest?

The other thing I have fallen in love with is the new Color Coach! I knew I wanted to use Riding Hood Red, and here is the color combination I worked with.

One thing I've learned using the color coach is that if I want to add another color to a combination, it always works to use the dynamic duo color (in this case Cherry Cobbler) which is what I did for this card. I also know I love anything that is a Shelli favorite, which you see is the case in this creative combination.

I know you are probably here to see what I did with the Sketchy Saturday Diva challenge, so here is the sketch...

and here is the card! I did alter the size of the center rectangle.

I think this has to be one of my favorite cards of the last several months! Now if I could just my act together, I'd make a dozen of these and have them on hand for Valentine's Day!

Stamp: Greeting Card Kids
Paper: Love letter DSP, Subtles Patterns DSP, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, watercolor paper
Accessories: Scallop edge border punch, small heart punch, stampin' dimensionals, aqua painter and coordinating markers

If you are blog hopping to see all of the sketch cards, you will want to head over to Becky's blog to see what she came up with this week. If for any reason a link is missing, you can head over to the Utah Diva's blog to see who is next.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend, and for those of you on the East Coast, enjoy the cooler weather!
