Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge! 

Diane Morales uses the sketch in such a fun way by using sentiments on either side of the sweet kitties from the  Newton's Sweetheart stamp. Then there's her sweet background with the floating hearts. She used the  Tumbling Hearts stencil. So sweet!


Best Wishes to you both by Emily features Newton's Sweetheart and Happy Little Thoughts by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Emily Lauritzen brings us this darling romantic card featuring Newton's Sweetheart stamp set and the Happy Little Thoughts stamp and die set. Just love the floral wreath around the sentiment and the sweet newly weds!

I'm so fawned of you by Zsofia features Splendid Stags and Deer Friend by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Zsofia Molnar brings us this amazing masculine card!  Using the Splendid Stags die set, she cuts the stag and mirror stag image out of the gilttery gold paper. It looks wonderfully!  Then she embosses the sentiment from Deer Friend stamp set in gold.  Her use of the plaid paper provides the perfect backdrop!

For my mother by Andrea features Lovely Blooms by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Andrea Shell brings us these gorgeous blooms from the  Lovely Blooms stamp and die set. Love the pastel colors against the Kraft paper. The twine and splattering of sequins are perfect touches for this amazing card!
