A Valentine for Monkey 93

It's Love + Sketch for this week's Monkey Challenge 93. The big thing is that you have to use pennants. Since I have neither pennant stamps nor pennant punches, it put the "challenge" into this card. I made a little template and then cut my pennants from Cherry Cobbler card stock that had been embossed with hearts.  The base card is Melon Mambo, layered with white cardstock (with corners punched for a little decoration) then some Recollections DSP. The large heart was die cut from Cherry Cobbler and overlaid with the sentiment (stamped in CC on white) and overlaid again with white die cut heart-shaped "lace". The smaller hearts were punched from CC and MM cardstock. I added little pink pearls on the pennants. It doesn't really show, but the pennants are attached with dimensionals so they do stick out a little from the card. The 3 little hearts are also attached with dimensionals.

Here's this week's sketch:

Cute little kitten eh? I love the little pink tongue sticking out.
