Week 208 Sketch time

My Goodness our challenge last week hit a chord with lots of you!
What an amazing number of entries!
Thank you all so much!
This time we have a sketch for you!
Sketch 14

Here it is!

Here is a card inspired by Lisa (I'm in Haven) who used a Memory Box die to make a flower. I loved it immediately and wanted to get the die for myself, but then thought that maybe I could adapt one I already had.
This is how I did it, I apologise for forgetting to turn the image the right way up for you!
There are more cards on my personal blog!
Firstly using Paper Smooches balloon dies I die-cut 2 heart shaped balloons
and inked them up with Distress Inks in Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry & Barn door.
The Eiffel Tower stamp is from the Je T'Aime set from Clearly Besotted
This is heat-embossed in Hero Arts white EP onto a panel of white cardstock
 which is also inked up using the same distress inks as above.
(In line with the sketch I promise I did die-cut half of the heart balloon 
from the panel at the top - before popping it up on 3d foam)
The sentiment is also Clearly Besotted: Paired Up and the balloon ties
from CBS: Build a bug set.
I've combined Avery Elle Storybook stamps with some washi tape for this fairly literal interpretation of the sketch.  The balloon is diecut from a scrap.

There are more examples on our personal blogs so we would be delighted if you could pop over via the links above our names to see what else we have done for you!
We hope you'll enjoy this simple sketch.
