Utah Divas International - Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends,

It is crazy how fast time passes.  It just seems like yesterday I was posting 'Last Weeks' challenge.  Here is the sketch challenge for this week.
This challenge was a little rough on me.  I don't like things to be 'busy' all in one place and everything was at the 'bottom' of this card.  A challenge it was :) 
Here is what I came up with !

I stuck with the challenge, but normally I would have put the sentiment in the middle of the card.
MELON MAMBO ~ I am so thrilled this color will not be retiring.  I have really enjoyed working with this color and normally we would be saying 'Bye Bye' on June 30th. 
If you are a regular follower of my blog, you will know I LOVE the Big Shot. I use it with most of my creations.  The beautiful background you see on the Melon Mambo card stock is the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder in the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog (May 1- Aug 31)
I also love Heat Embossing.  I really wanted to make a point of the 'New Shoes' stamp.  I LOVE shopping, but there is something about SHOES :) Click here to see a previous post about shoes.
Here is the middle of the card

I used the Full Heart Punch and ran the hearts through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I stuck them to the card using Glue Dots and crunched them a little.

Great card Max and love that Melon Mambo :) Now I cant believe that stamp set does not have a coffee cup in it ... I think I need to come to your home office and explain things a little to the designers :)
