Love Beyond Measure & a New Challenge

It's Hump Day
let's Celebrate
a Challenge from
Paper Maniac
Who isn't on the constant lookout for new and exciting challenges? The Design Team of Paper Maniac has moved their Challenges and you can find it HERE.... This week's theme is to use the sketch provided, use black & white with just a Splash of COLOR. Can you still see the sketch in my project or was I a tad bit too Rebellious? I can't help it, this is how MY BRAIN INTERPRETS the sketch to. I will admit, that I am having issues not being able to have incorporated my beloved Ribbon and I didn't Color (Gasp). Go back and take a look at last week's Ferris Wheel project. Does the sketch look familiar? It should, after completing my project, I realized that I had jumped the gun by a whole week. SHHHHHH Maybe no-one noticed and thank Goodness I didn't call attention to it.
Once again I have reached for the 100% Happy stamp set by Unity. This stamp set is a Retail Store Exclusive, which means, it is NOT available at Unity. You can pick it up at Paper Maniac. I used the Inksentials White Gel pen to outline the word "LOVE" and the measuring cup. The measuring cut was adhered using foam dots and I added a hot pink heart for a little more texture.
have you noticed that
Paper Maniac is now

Oooh, what an eye catching card with all the black and that splash of pink. If I try this, it would never look this pretty. And any wholesale stamp company should put you in their DT as you seem to get them pretty cool retailers.

How fun is this? Love the splash of color! I'm the same way with sketches, only it's not rebellion with me, it's an inability to follow a sketch. I simply cannot arrange things well-I never get the perspective right. There's always something too big or too small.
