PTI's Bitty Dot Sketch Challenge

Saturday mornings are a delight for me as my husband gets up with the kidlets and I can sleep in if I want (and if we have no plans in the a.m.). Well, no such luck this morning. My head was spinning with ideas for a couple of altered items to give out in a couple of weeks. Hopefully, the inspiration and motivation keep flowing and I get them done in time. And maybe they'll make their way onto here! But, I digress.....onto today's project.

With 95 spools of gorgeous ribbon on the line, of course I just had to participate in Papertrey Ink's Bitty Dot Sketch Challenge on Nichole's blog. PTI's Heart Prints has definitely been my most used stamp set as of late, so I immediately grabbed it for this card.

The card base is black cardstock (from my stash....I'm almost out though, so it will be a good excuse to add some of PTI's True Black to my next order wink wink), layered with PTI's Raspberry Fizz stamped with SU's Craft White ink (which for some reason I was really arguing with today....usually, we are pretty good friends!) using a stamp from PTI's Polka Dot Basics set. On top of that is PTI's Pure Poppy cardstock. The sentiment and hearts are from Heart Prints, stamped in SU's Craft White ink and PTI's Raspberry Fizz Perfect Match ink, respectively. The small heart is glittered with JoAnne's ultrafine pink glitter, outlined with Ranger's Xmas Red Stickles, and popped up on foam. It is WAY more sparkly IRL, but I lost the sun before I was able to go outside to take a picture. The hearts are punched out using the Heart EK Success punches that PTI sells to go with the stamp set. And to finish the card off, I used some narrow red satin ribbon from my stash and three red Me & My Big Ideas icons bling. I wonder what Nichole has in store for us tomorrow!
