I am a CTS Guest Designer this week!

I am so happy to announce that I am *Guest Designer* this week over at Case This Sketch! Weeee!!! I’d like to offer a BIG shout out to Chrissy from CTS who invited me – this is my VERY first guest designer spot and I couldn’t be more excited!

Here is my card:

I started my design with the criss-cross of the arrows. I knew I wanted to incorporate a heart and/or a Valentine’s sentiment since this Friday is, after all, the big day of love!

I used two slightly different shades of embroidery floss to stitch the arrows onto the die cut heart, vellum overlay, and card.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to lay out the sentiment, and then used the fill feature to create a yummy pink and orange blend to the text.

Finally I glued some gold sequins for a little bling and also for the fact that I am really loving the pink/orange/gold color combination in projects that I’m seeing out there right now.
