Great little sketch at Card Patterns

See how easy this sketch at Card Patterns is? I wanted to use the kiss technique (part of the Hero Arts Blog contest this month) and turned my panel 90 degrees from the sketch at Card Patterns because my image looked like it was just dropping off a ledge and someone threw it a striped line to save it.

I got a cute package of 12" X 12"paper from "Big Lots", a discount store and had to use the striped pattern first. New punch went to work too. I like the sketch and will probably use it this week again, but I never know when I will get time to enter a contest, so I'm going with this first card. There are little hearts stamped on the background in Distress ink Worn Lipstick - you have to love distress inks... well I DO!
