It's Saturday Challenge time at Create with Connie & Mary! And look at the sketch challenge we have in store for you:

Awww.....isn't this card the cutest? And it is almost all created with "NEW STUFF" from the Occasions Mini Catalog:

I just love this stamped image from the Take It To Heart Stamp Set. I decided to color just part of it with a Not Quite Navy Stampin' Write Marker so that I would have the two silhouette's riding their bike on a bit of dirt. The shape used is the Labels Collection Framelits. I cut two, one in Whisper White Cardstock and one in Crumb Cake Cardstock. For the Crumb Cake layer, I tore the bottom to make the dirt, embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. And those embossed hearts oh my! Easy, peasy with the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die.
