Welcome to challenge Saturday peeps

Hi there,

How's your weekend going? Cold enough for you? Weather forecasters predicting snow in the UK in places so, if you are in one of those places, then please take care.

I have to be honest, Mr Mojo's been hiding in a corner since our return home to this cold and positively DANK weather but I came across a sketch yesterday which just called my name.

And now I'd like to share it with you ...

My card
And a closer view of my image panel

And the insert and envelope

Materials used:
  • White 5" x 7", 300gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 11 x 16cm + snippet for image panel
  • Two pieces of red card cut to 11.6 x 16.6cm + snippet for layering
  • Black card snippet for layering
  • Posh Impressions heart image stamped on to snippet of white card using Versamark ink and then heat embossed using red tinsel EP, elsewhere stamped using Adirondack red pepper ink before die cutting to a circle and then matting on to a slightly larger die cut circle and scallop edged circle
  • Snippet of red card cut to form the diagonal panel on the card front 
  • Faber Castell "S" Pitt pen used to draw two lines to edge the coloured panel
  • Papermania sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black (an additional Kaisercraft sentiment stamped on the insert)
