Freshly Made Sketches #17: Sprinkled Expressions

There are many amazing stamping challenges on the internet.
Today I decide to try my hand at this week's challenge from 
This week's designer is Rita Wright...I love her work!

Here is my version:

My card includes a sneak peek from the upcoming Sale-a-bration catalogue called "Sprinkled Expressions".  It is a super cute set that includes three images - a heart (shown in my card), a star and a flower along with three coordinating sentiments.  

You can earn this set for FREE during Sale-a-bration 
(January 24 - March 31, 2012) by placing a $60.00 order.

I also used two new products from the new 
I embossed the Pink Pirouette layer with the cute little hearts 
I attached two pieces of the 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon in 
Riding Hood Red along the top and bottom of the embossed pattern.  
I wanted to make sure my image sat nicely over the ribbon so I used two Stampin' Dimensionals in each corner. 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
