Hello Card

Hi everyone :-D  

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. :-D

Today I want to share with you this Hello Card I made this morning. 

My card is a CASE of beautiful card made by Imke Ludvig of Imke's Creations. I used the same sketch, used the same image and color scheme as she did on her card.

Imke is a very talented and creative, pleasant and friendly lady from Germany. I like her style a lot! She is a designer of most sketches for I {heart} sketches challenges, which I like a lot and use them often.

Stop by Imke's blog, Imke's Creations, and see her beautiful work! :-D 

Details about my card...

For my card layout I used a sketch105 with a twist from I {heart} sketches by Imke Ludvig.

Card dimensions are 98 mm x 143 mm (3 7/8" x 5 5/8").

I used  From the Heart Stamp 'Hamlet PigWit Being Shy' digital stamp set, which includes cute image and five sentiments

This is Stamp of the Month April 2015 and I got mine for playing March From the Heart Stamps Stamp of the Month challenge. FTHS SOTM is a progressive challenge. Faith, illustrator and owner, generously gives a digital stamp of the month to everyone who joined previous challenge.

Image is paper pieced
I printed four images on pink paper, shaded and colored parts I needed, fussy cut all parts and colored edges with black permanent pen. I printed one more image on white cardstock paper, fussy cut it and glued all pieces together. 

Here is a photo of all pieces I used for paper piecing. 

I added 3-D foams behind image and sentiment and placed them on the card.
