Smeared Ink Monday - Happy Valentine's Day!!

Good Monday Morning Loveies!!  (hehehee) (I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Valentine's Day!)!!!

I'm with you today with a Smeared and Smudged sketch creation!!  I drew inspiration this week from the Very Sketchy section of the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  Here is the sketch challenge for February!
I absolutely LOVE Smeared Ink's Inky Dreams set.  It's fabulous for backgrounds or focal images as I've used here.  My card starts out with a white sparkly cardstock base (PTI) and continues on with hues of pink and brown.  

I inked my stamp up in SU!'s Cherry Cobbler ink and coated it with my extra thick embossing powder.  Once I heat set it I doused it again with the embossing powder heat it to give it an extra wet painty look.  I LOVE how it came out!  

Once cool and dry, I sent my inky piece through my Big Shot using a Cuttlebug embossing folder that has gears all over it.  It's subtle but adds great texture!
Following the sketch, I trimmed my main panel into 4 sections with the bottom part trimmed as well.  I adhered everything down and added a pearl flourish and 3D metal butterfly to the mix. 
I hope you all have a fabulous Valentine's Day!!!
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired to create something with LOVE today!!  =)
