City Crafter + Paper Smooches SPARKS + Random Acts Sketch

This card is a three-fer - I used input from three challenges to make one card. And yes, my brain is tired from keeping it all straight. :)

It started when I saw this bracelet at the new Paper Smooches SPARKS blog:

which gave me the color inspiration. I then chose this sketch from Random Acts of Creativity:

and the theme of "hearts" from City Crafter Challenges:

and out of all that I made this:

I love the colors in this DSP, and they worked with two of the colors I wanted to use for the hearts, so it was poifect! Here are some details on what's in the card:

Stamps - Verve
Papers - Domestic Goddess DSP, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: SU small heart punch, SU Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit, SU Large Oval punch, SU Scalloped Oval punch, MFT border die, SU pearls, SU Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, SU white baker's twine, staple

Yes, I added the ribbon element in the upper left, and yes, I used a staple to hold it there. The card seemed to need something, so I took the liberty of adding it, and the stapler was out, so, well, you know ...

Okay, off to craft some more! Thanks for stopping by!
