You Lift Me Up!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!!

Here is my card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC56! I love Mercy's sketches and today's was especially fun to work with!!

For my card, I used this SUPER sweet Cuppie scene from the brand new, and totally AWESOME, Cuppie Love Scenes from Taylored Expressions!

Now...ALL the cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon, chipboard heart AND stickles are from the UBER fabu Valentine's Day Key Ingredients! I {heart} the Valentine's Day Key Ingredients! The patterned paper in this KI is Be Loved by My Minds Eye...need I say more???

The only embellie on my card that is not from the Valentine's Day Key Ingredients is the SUPER cute (so cute I just ordered more of em'), heart trinket pin, which is part of the Valentine's Sweet Sampler (which I just this second noticed is out of stock...just click Request Restock Notice and you will get an email when it is back in the TE Store!

I stamped Cuppies in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. The balloon was paper pieced with the same patterns of Be Loved that I used on my card.

I colored the chipboard heart with a Copic Marker and the gave it a coat of Stardust Stickles...so yummy & glittery! The sentiment, "You Lift Me Up", was stamped directly onto the patterned paper, and I sponged around the focal panel after cutting it out with a Square Nestie.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
