Two challenges in one!

I wanted to do a card that would feature the current sketch challenge on Beate's blog, as well as the Saturday challenge from Jen's blog. For Beate's blog, the sketch was fairly simple...although I think I sort of fiddled with it a bit. For Jen's challenge, we had to do a card with hearts and a square card....so I combined them both!

Here is the sketch:

And here is what I came up with:

I absolutely LOVE how the new colors Basic Grey and Purely Pomegranate go together!!! I'm excited to use more Basic Grey in future projects, as I think it's a great color. I also used the new Purely Pomegranate double stitched ribbon, and layered it with retired blue organdy ribbon. The stamps are all retired...unfortunately.

Stampin' Supplies (all Stampin' Up):
Stamps: Love It Hostess set (retired), Love Matters (retired), Doodle Alphabet (retired)...note: Love Matters and the Doodle Alphabet could possibly appear in future catalogs. They have not truly been retired: Stampin' Up considers all stamps to be "current" for one year from release date. These were released March 1, 2007, so they could appear in the Spring/Summer catalog. Here's to hoping!!
Paper: Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Basic Grey, Whisper White Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Basic Grey
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Silver Brads, Stampin' Sponge, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon, Blue Organdy Ribbon (retired), non SU items: Cuttlebug and Hearts Embossing folder

Hey Jennifer,

Great stuff. Speaking of Pomegranate :)

I recently built a pomegranate social network called PomSocial and would be thrilled if you were to visit and participate. I’m really looking forward to communicating and working with everyone who is into pomegranates! Best Wishes, David (pomsocial.com)
