SOS Sketch challenge!

Hello!

I'm back with another Shopping Our Stash challenge!


This week, you gotta use a sketch!  I don't often follow sketches for some reason, but when I do, gee the card comes together quickly!

I chose this fab one from Retro Sketches

So here is the card:


I used Neat and Tangled stamps, Lawn Fawn papers, Hero Arts notecard and the inks are Tumbled Glass (around the edges to create the sky) and Versafine (THANKS CHARI!! It's *the* nicest ink)

It's ALL paper pieced. Even the doorknob, the doorframe, the window PANES (as well as the window itself)...crazy I am.

I glued the wood hearts onto some paper (the back of the paper) then trimmed around them very carefully. I added some stickles at the end ;) Who doesn't love glittery hearts floating out of a chimney?!

Here are the goodies I used: 



       
           
                                           
       
       
           
                                           
       
       
           
                                           
       
       
           
                                           
       
       
           
                                           
       
       
           
                                           
       
       
           
                                           
       
       
           
                                           
       



Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to pop over to the SOS blog now to see what the rest of the DT made!! Hope you'll enter your own creation in!!
