This Valentine uses Lauren Meader's Saturday Sketch Challenge #19. This is my first time using one of Lauren's sketches, and this one ROCKS! I love a sketch with interesting layers like this one! I paired the stamp set Love You Much with Bella Rose DP and Basic Black accents.
The medallion was stamped in Basic Black Classic Ink onto Pink Pirouette and again onto Riding Hood Red. The Pink Pirouette piece was punched with the Scallop Circle Punch, then each scallop was punched with the 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch. A solid Basic Black CS Scallop Circle backs the Pink Pirouette scallop circle. The next layer of the medallion is a 1 1/4" Riding Hood Red CS circle, then a 3/4" Basic Black CS circle, then a Pink Pirouette Heart cut out and raised with a Stampin' Dimensionals.

I'm headed back to work tomorrow after my hiatus since Thanksgiving. I had originally planned to be back on Jan. 5 but an infection in my foot set me back a week. I'm supposed to be on "light duty" for awhile, as I'm still pretty slow and wobbly. It has been so much fun having time to create and post almost daily! It has been so therapeutic and relaxing! I will miss this daily fun, but will post when I can. Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes during my recovery! (I've got THE BEST readers!).
Also, I'm having difficulty keeping up with my e-mails, and know that it will only get worse after I'm back to work. If I haven't responded to an e-mail or a comment you left, know that I have read it, appreciate the communication, and am trying to get around to responding. My e-mail inbox is a busy place these days!
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back this evening with this week's iPICKS!
