365 Cards - Day 353 - Sketch

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards! This week we're celebrating SKETCHES!! So if you love sketches this is your week!
I came up with a super simple sketch and you can embellish as you see fit! After the last few weeks of rather elaborate cards, I also went pretty simple (and little) in my card.

The card is only 3.5" square and I used the Triangle Trifold tutorial at SCS. I love making the parts of the sketches functional! Here's the inside...

So here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. 2 Sisters Challenge Blog - hearts
2. 4 Crafty Chicks - Valentine's Day
3. Alota Rubber Stamps - red, pink, and white
4. Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - corny Valentine's Day sayings
5. BasicGrey Challenges - Hearts+BG item: the paper is Hopscotch
6. Dutch Dare Card Challenges - Love is in the air
7. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Valentine's
8. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - different fold
9. CCEE Stampers - embossing: kinda hard to see, but I used the Sizzix hearts embossing folder on the pink patterned paper
10. Craft your passion challenges: Pink
11. Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - Love is all around
12. Crafty Cardmakers - hearts
13. Crafty Sentiments - Valentine's/Love

16. Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - tempting texture

19. Let's Ink It Up - romance/valentine's day: stamp is from Stampin' Up "love bug" set
