Bombshell's February Sketch Challenge & CPS Sketch 153

Bombshell's resident sketch guru, Kathi, gave us this sketch challenge for February:

(This also works for CPS153) Here are the rules, simple as they are, if you'd like to play along:

This sketch can be used for more than just Valentine's Day. You can use it for "Love" cards or Anniversary cards. Plus you can change the heart to a different shape to make the card for any other purpose! The only definite rule is to have fun with it and give it some Bombshell flair!
Share your creations here, in the gallery, and over at the Bombshell Forum at PCP!

I decided to make my card for a bride-to-be. I used Bombshell's Lucky Bride stamp set. I just LOVE this bride image!

It didn't turn out quite like I had planned, although I followed the sketch very closely. The card measures 5-1/2" square. The card base and patterned paper are unknown as I received them in a large blog candy. The heart is cut from Stampin' Up's Pretty In Pink. I crumpled the heart and then flattened it out and dragged a white craft pad across it, leaving white along the crumpled parts. The eyelet punched piece is SU's Certainly Celery. The ribbons are both from Offray. The bride image is stamped onto GP110 white cardstock, colored using a combination of Copic and SU markers and cut out, popping it up on dimensionas. I used a gold spica pen on her veil and fan. I applied a stick-on light green gem to her neckline, and a larger gem to the center of the black flower.

I hope that you'll play along with us over on the Bombshell Forum. If you're not a member of the forum yet, what are you waiting for?

Remember, you could win a fabulous prize from Bombshell Stamps if you play along! Also check out Ms. February's "Wet & Wild" challenge here.
