Love to Love You

I saw this sketch challenge over at Moxie Fab, and I really wanted to play along.  It's just such a fun sketch by Nina Brackett, and I love the idea of a shaped card!

Here's what I came up with:

Of course, I used the new Art Philosophy cartridge to make the card base from Sonoma paper.  What a fast and easy way to make a shaped card!  For the center, I followed the pattern from the how-to book Magic to make a 3-D spinner.  However, I didn't want this to spin, but rather just take advantage of the unique dimension.  The stamp set I used is the December stamp of the month.  I know I should be waiting until December to show off this set, but I can't seem to keep my hands off this set!  I think that would be makings of a favorite stamp set - what do you think?  Other items used are the Bling Assortment, Bamboo Waxy Flax, and Opaque Pearl Gems.

Moxie Fab is doing three more sketch challenges this week, so I am anxious to see what they are.  I always love the special issues, and Card Ideas for Paper Crafters is no exception!
