Sweet Sunday Sketch and CAS(E) This Sketch Challenges

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

Hello again!  I've got two Valentine cards to share with you today.  Yesterday I was working with Basic Grey's Kissing Booth paper pack and made a couple of cards with it.  I posted one yesterday, which you can see here
On this one, I cut the floral pattern using a Spellbinder's die.   The vertical pink piece and the banner were cut with a paper trimmer.  I stamped the heart border on the banner with Rose Bud Memento Luxe ink.  The larger hearts are from a Martha Stewart punch.  I added some shimmer with a Wink of Stella brush and then covered them with Glossy Accents for some shine.  Each of the hearts in the border were also covered with the Wink of Stella brush.  The cream background was run through a script embossing folder.
I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout.  Glad that Karen is doing them weekly again!
Stamps:  Hearts on Fire (Verve)
Paper:  Vintage cream, melon mambo, Kissing Booth (Basic Grey)
Ink:  Rose Bud (Memento Luxe), Versafine onyx black
Accessories:  Spellbinder's circle die, Martha Stewart heart border punch, Wink of Stella shimmer brush, Glossy Accents, script embossing folder

CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge
I used the same papers once again, however I stamped an image to color this time.  This image is an old one from Paper Makeup Stamps.  It's called Dandy Wishes.  I was on their team from pretty much the beginning to about the time Katie decided to go all digital.  I'm not a fan of digital images.  I much prefer to stamp.  But, PMS had some great images!  This is one that never saw ink!  What a shame because it is such a fun image!  I stamped it in Archival Jet Black onto watercolor paper and watercolored it with SU reinkers in Melon Mambo and Certainly Celery.  I also covered each of the hearts with the Wink of Stella shimmer brush, and added Glossy Accents to the large one.  The sentiment and stitching were stamped in Rose Bud Memento Luxe ink.  Both of those stamps are from PTI.
I followed this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.  The flower in their sketch gave me the idea to use the Dandy Wishes image.
Thanks for stopping by to see my cards!
