Be Mine {Card Patterns Sketch 150}!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

My Favorite Things is the sponsor for this week's sketch at Card Patterns, Sketch 150!  Since I love a sketch, and we all know I ADORE MFT, I just had to play along!

I decided to create yet another Valentine using this sketch.  I think Valentine's Day may be my most favorite card making holiday...or at least it's tied with Halloween!  For my card, I used the super sweet Valentine Flopsey!  He is colored with Copic Markers and the heart he is holding was paper pieced with the same patterns I used on my card, Love Me from My Minds Eye.  He is popped up onto the diamond panel with Jody Boosters and I added some rhinestones on the side.

I used the Jumbo Ric Rac Die-Namics to separate the two patterns of paper, and I cut it twice, once from Smokey Shadow and once from Choice Buttercream and then layered them.  I added some Blossom Twine over top.  I created a double heart with the Homespun Birdhouse Die-Namics (the larger heart) and the Hearts A Plenty Die-Namics, and the smaller heart was cut from My Favorite Felt in Strawberry Ice Cream.  I added a button cut with the Button Quartet Die-Namics on top tied with some more Blossom Twine, and the sentiment, "Be Mine" was stamped onto a panel cut with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics.  

Here is a closeup of the hearts/button/twine combo.  LOVE my Die-Namics.

For the inside I added more patterned paper, and another border cut with the Jumbo Ric Rac Die-Namics.  Another double heart, this one stamped with "Luv U", along with some more twine and rhinestones, complete the inside.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
