Early New Sketch!

The February LO from The Sketch File has been released a week early so is available from today.  I've used it to make this card
I kept fairly close to the sketch for this one, though I did replace the smaller circle with a couple of hearts.  I wanted to keep it simple and see if I could use the papers from this rather old (and for some reason, hardly-used) paper pad for most of the elements.
The Sketch File
14xm square card blank
All papers from an old Bo Bunny 6x6 pad; the little love-birds on the focal piece and the hearts are cut from a couple of the papers and matted onto card for some dimension
Silver cord, silver heart brads, tiny silver gems. red heart-shaped pearl
Plain circle cut with Nested Circles die set (Spellbinders)
Black matting circle cut with Pinking Circles die set (Spellbinders)

Hope you'll give the sketch a try, it would be lovely to see what you can do with it.
Thanks for looking :)
