Prickley Pear January Sketch Challenge

Good Morning Sweet Friends!!! It's another day in a weekend full of Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp goodness!!  Today's feature is the January Sketch Challenge!  Here's the sketch:
I used the Heart Key Crown Clear Stamp set for today's project:

and here's my take on the sketch:
I used my January CupCards {to go} Valentine's Kit which is absolutely fabulous and so fun to work with!!  Head on over to the CupCards {to go} website and comment on all the sneak posts for your chance to win!!  The kit reveal is scheduled for Monday night!!!  I know you're going to love it!!
Instructions:
1.  Die cut edges of card base and card layers.
2.  Dry emboss cardstock layer.  Ink all edges.
3.  Layers patterned paper and cardstock onto card base and stitch seam. (I used the stitching rub ons in the CupCards {to go} kit.)
4.  Stamp hearts and fussy cut.  Make a heart border for the top of the card. Make a mat of hearts for the sentiment.
5.  Die cut sentiment and embellish the front of the card with assorted goodies and a ribbon bow.

Supplies Used:
Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Heart Key Crown Clear Stamp set
