Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday!  One of the great challenges over in the new KSS Forum is a Friday Sketch by Connie (I have a Word of the Week challenge and a weekly Q&A thread every Thursday and a Flashback feature on Fridays).  There's no time limit to these challenges so it's fun to pop in and grab a sketch or other challenge when you get stuck or have some time to stamp!    I used the sketch that was posted this past Friday for my card today - love it!

I used the final set of the new ones released on New Year's, Multi-Step Sweet Heart Roses. This is a mini set - which means it's the perfect choice for you if you've never used KSS before!  The mini sets are a super way to give them a try - the packaging even contains a color recipe for the set!

I pulled out my new Echo Park Be Mine paper for this - the romantic papers were perfect for this rose heart.

After I stamped the heart I decided to add the sentiment over the top using a small strip of vellum.  I embossed it using Silver Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder that is available in the KSS store!  It's wonderful ep - great for these small detailed images!

Pay a visit to the KSS Crew today - don't forget our guest for this month too - and then take a peek in the Forum and join us for a challenge or two!
