Happy Sunday to all my internet friends!  It looks like I’m going to be pretty busy with the OWH Stars and Stamps blog challenges, as they have another sketch challenge posted.

So my card today is for the Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #103, and here is my card…

OWH 103

These papers are from DCWV’s The Linen Closet mat stack.

These beautiful stamps are from Inspired by Stamping’s Ahoy, Matey stamp set.

My card is based on the above sketch in which the hearts are symbols for any elements. The overall card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2” and the panel sizes are shown above in the sketch.

Complete instructions are listed below, so if you want all the details, please scroll down.
