C4C 369 Valentine Sketch Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our January 2017 Hostess is Caz Counsell, and our guest designer is Lynn Anderson (Craft & Waffle).

Caz has a sketch for us this week:

Now don't fall over or anything, but I did stay REALLY close to the sketch! So not like me. :-) I used one of Karen Burniston's Agatha Edges to create the shaped split in the background paper. Such a fun idea - I know there are dies out there that are made specifically for this purpose, but using an edge or border die you might already have works too! Thank you Caz, for this fun idea.

Time to start working on Valentine's, so I added some hand lettering inside. Still need to work on spacing and keeping my letters from angling up to the right, but practice will get me there eventually.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C369.
