Key to my Heart

3 challenges today - Just Us Girls is having a challenge to use stitching on a project; the ABC Challenge this week is "L" for layering; and it is Super Sketchy Sunday over at 365 Cards!

Here is the sketch:

Wow - this was a tough sketch for me! The square on the side reminded me of a belt buckle, or some kind of lock, and the next thing I knew, I was looking for a key on one of the Cricut cartridges, and it blossomed from there.


The shapes are all from the Cricut Indie Art cartridge. You can hardly tell, but I embossed the background paper with a Sizzix heart plate.

I printed the sentiment on my computer using a font called "Hole-hearted".

Thanks so much for Looking!
