Creative Knockouts #90: Sentimentally Yours!

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's Thursday is off to a fantastic start. This morning I want to share a super fun card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#90) where the challenge is....Sentimentally Yours!  This week's sponsor is The Stamping Boutique, and oh yes, there is a prize to be won!



I printed this awesome Chemistry Set and colored with Copics. I created the sentiment using Photoshop and various fonts from Kevin and Amanda's Fonts for Peas collection. I chose this bright paper from Basic Grey since I decided to make this a love/anniversary/wedding card. Using a non-traditional fun/clever/witty/nerd sentiment, I thought it really needed a bright look to it rather than the more classic "wedding look" (which I also love, btw). I added a little bit of sparkle to some of the bubbles with a glittery gold gel pen. It didn't really show up in the photo, here's a closeup of the main image:



This is such an awesome nerd image (I AM a nerd, and plenty proud of it!). I would have gone crazy with love and excitement if I had received this as a wedding card, hehe! :) {No, I am NOT kidding}

Lots of dimension to this piece, I used foam tape to pop up the various layers. This card follows the May Viva la Verve sketch for week 3.



Ok, I always say this, but I really like this sketch!! Simple and classic but so many options to fancy it up! I actually made 2 cards with it, you will see the second one on Saturday with a BIG design team blog hop from JessicaLynnOriginal.com! Make sure you are back here on Saturday because there's a great prize up for grabs.

That's it for me today! Don't forget to swing over to the Creative Knockouts blog to link up your "Sentimentally Yours" projects for your chance to win with The Stamping Boutique! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!
