Hambo's 100th

This week was Hambo Hoedown's 100th challenge.  Check it out here.  I got the "Snow Heart" digital image free since I played along last week and followed the requirements.  I love their challenges.  This week's challenge was a card sketch.

This is what I came up with.

A side view of the card showing the layers.

Here's what I used to make it:
Digital image & sentiment- Snow Heart digital image by Hambo Stamps
Colored with Copics
V04, V06, BG23, YG06, R35, R37, R39, RV23, E00, E11, E13, E43, E47, E49, B00, G000
Solid cardstock- Recollections
Patterned paper- DCWV Stack 8
Edge punch- EK Success "Bubbles"
Fiskars 1/2" Heart punch
Faux stitching- burgundy Le Pen

I added the heart shape behind the image and cut out around it and the image as one. Mounted it on a piece of  pink cardstock.  I added faux burgundy stitching  around the heart.  I also cut another colored copy of the image out and popped it up on homemade foam squares. Then cut a third colored copy of the head, arms and heart out again and popped it up on more homemade foam squares.  The sentiment shape has the heart added and then cut out around. I mounted it on another piece of burgundy cardstock and cut around it.  It is mounted on a double layer of homemade foam squares.

I hope you like it and please comment.
