I just love this sketch

Today is my RDO and before I start cleaning which is in desperate need of doing I had to do a blog post, believe me I would prefer not to spend my day off cleaning but it has to be done :(. As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I had to work with it. I love the simplicity of the sketch which is perfect for my CAS style of cards. I already have a few more cards planned using this sketch which I will share shortly.

I wanted this card to be bright and happy and did this by the using bright striped patterned paper, a vivid blue for the background and also a bright orange for the word love. Every time I look at this card it makes me want to sing "All you need is love" by the Beatles, I hope this card has the same happy affect on all of you.I paper pieced the small red heart balloons and put dimensional magic on the balloons to make them stand out. The main image is one of my favourite digital stamps purchased from Digital Vintage Dreams on Etsy.
