...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #32 (MTSC32)

Welcome back to Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be bringing my sketches back to my blog! I am so thankful for all of the kind words and encouragement that have been shared with me over the last few days...you all have been so wonderful to me! Thank you for rejoining me on this adventure. As you have probably already noticed, I can't seem to put the "Hearts On Fire" stamp set from Verve down! I love the heart designs, the sentiment fonts, and the versatility of the set. It's not only a Valentine's Day set, but it could also be used for weddings, anniversaries, and thank you cards. I used the patterned papers from the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper pack along with the following colors of cardstock: Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, and Whisper White. The only embellishment I used was a piece of Rich Razzleberry Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon. What do you think?

I am so proud to have some wonderful and uber-talented ladies helping me out each week. They have often been my muses while I was searching for an idea or concept for a card, and now they can be yours, too! So...let's see what "The Muses" have in store for us today!

Now it's your turn! Create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and link your creation below in Mr. Linky. Be sure to use the keyword MTSC32 when uploading to a public gallery. I will be checking out each submission, so don't be surprised if I contact you about being a guest designer for an entire month of Tuesdays. I am pleased to announce that my first "Guest Muse" will appear next week, and her projects will be featured here on my blog along with my samples each week!

Happy Stamping & Creating!
