Atlantic Hearts Sketch #410

 We have a super fun sketch for you this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! Can you tell what my new favorite stamp set is?  The Let's Paw-ty set is just too cute!  I decided the sketch challenge would the perfect way to showcase other uses for this bold background stamp.  Here is complete stamp set-

I inked up the large background stamp in Intense Black ink and then cut squares out of the image to go along with my sketch design.  To create my slimline design, I started with a black panel of cardstock measuring 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  I then used a square die to cut the three frames.  I finished off the outside edge with a stitched frame from the Diagonal Stripes Thin Cut. I only wanted the stitched frame, so I trimmed out the inner stripes. Here is the original die-

A pop of color and a tad bit of shading was added to the image with Copic markers.  My sentiment was heat embossed in white.  

I strayed ever so slightly from the original sketch design.  Here is the original sketch for you to play along with-
