PTI Anniversary - Sketch & Color Recipe Card Challenge

So over at Papertrey Ink they're having all kinds of challenges in celebration of their 7th Anniversary. Here are the two recipe cards I used to make my card

I used the Tremendous Treats: Valentine stamp set and die to stamp the adorable puppy and stamp the sentiment. I also used the little heart stamps in the set to create the background with 2 different colored inks: PTI Pure Poppy and SU Purely Pomegranate (I need to get me some Scarlet Jewel ink but in the meantime I think it worked out just fine). I cut the little banner using the Double ended banner die from PTI. I cut the large circle with a Nestabilities die and then used PTI's Aida Impression plate to give the card some texture. The little hearts were cut using a Fiskars heart hole punch I've had for years.
I'm up to my ears in Valentine making right now and having such fun - it is probably my favorite card making holiday of all - no... it's definitely my favorite :-)  But I had to stop and create something with all those fun challenges going on over there at Papertrey Ink.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is adorable!!! The background you created looks amazing. When I first saw it, I thought it was patterned paper. I've been looking through all your posts and your creations for PTI have been awesome. Lovin' the doodlie-do stamp set after seeing your card and I adore how you used the hexagon die.
