Here is this month’s sketch.....



   Today I'm showing my take on this month's sketch challenge and dare! Mine is just a little bit different from the sketch but I am sure you will see how it worked for me. I thought out of the box with this one and decided to incorporate the sketch into a project life title card. 

  The die I decided to use was an obvious choice given the sketch. I went with the Love Heart die.


For this particular project I didn't want the word to show in the project so I overlapped it with the week title by tucking the strip of Glitz patterned paper in the loop of the L. I replaced the flower embellishment with a Glitz designs rhinestone and some enamel dots by My Minds Eye. For the ribbon dare portion I took some black ribbon and silver embroidery floss. I stitched a little arrow onto the ribbon and stapled it to my card using the Tim Holtz Mini Attacher. All of the printed paper used is from the Glitz Designs Wild and Free 6x6 paper pad. 


And here it is incorporated into my project life layout.


Here is the right side.


The bottom right card in the photo above was from the digital glitz collection. I used a Ali Edwards 4x6 outline brush on top and the journaling. It's hard to see from the photo but the upper right card says Movie Date on top of the Glitz designs heart washi tape.

I think everything came together quite nicely. I was a little stuck with this particular week for a while so using the sketch really helped inspire me to get this layout completed!

What will you create with this month's sketch?
Don't forget to link up and show us your take on the sketch and dare!

Happy Crafting!
