SPDSS20 Love you THIS much

Yep, it is SugarSketch time. 
Come play with us and win a SugarPea Designs GC. 
I flipped the sketch and sponged my grass and sky for the skinny strips. 
I used this brand new cutie patootie Foxy Friend
You know what?  My card is mail friendly.

 I made my grass and sky with a mask I made using the Heart Border Die
I cut out the heart border, (works best if you cut it out from a piece of paper larger then the die)
then I taped the top of the die to hold it to the paper on top and to keep the heart pieces in place.
 Next, I cut the die to fit my panel and separated the two pieces. 
I used the panel with the hearts to sponge my grass over my masked image. 
 I used the other piece to sponge my sky. 
I sponged with the intent of having a gradient effect.
Now I removed the mask on my image and am ready to color. 

To finish it off, I die cut three hearts using the 
Layered Treat Labels Die and adhered them using the die inlay technique.
