Sweet Sketch Wednesday - SSW85

Happy midweek everyone! Today is Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge day and we welcome back Digi Stamp Boutique as our sponsor this week. This darling "Love Owls" image caught my eye and I thought how adorable for a Valentines card for one of my favorite couples. You can find it at the Digi Stamp Boutique Store here.
The Grand Prize winner of this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge will receive 6 free digi images from Digi Stamp Boutique - WOW! - thanks Sally Ann for your generous prize and SSW sponsorship!

Now for this week's sketch - a total keeper and your best "go to sketch" that you'll frequent time and time again!

Thanks Arlana for another awesome sketch. I love your sketches for the layering possibilities and because they're so darn practical too. That's what I mean about being a "go to sketch" - easy to do, nice finished look, focus on the image panel, etc. I could just go on and on about the Sweet Sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Here's a close up of the image - you can see I colored those love birds with Copic markers and then glittered up their heart feathers. The papers I've used here are K&Company. And in case there were not enough hearts on this Valentines card, I added another with the silver charm!

Now for more inspiration, visit the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and gaze on the terrific showcase of cards from my design team buddies. And please remember to leave them a little love along the way too!  Thanks for stopping by today - looking forward to seeing your card using this week's sketch!
