missing "u" blues

I decided I want to participate in more sketch challenges. While it's easy and satisfying to CASE a card I love, the extra effort to create a card from a sketch is well worth it...On the other hand coming up with my own cards from scratch is something I may never master...

Here's my take on the above sketch:  

Another play on alphabet card. Loving these little letter these days....I started by carefully lined up all the letters on a piece of pool party Core'dinations cardstock (love the extra texture), and used my paper piercing tool to pierce the edges. I don't used designer paper much on my cards, but I thought this set worked great on this card.  I used gorgeous grunge to make my own tone on tone background on the Island Indigo Base...

Notice, I made my own enamel dots - I covered some punched circles in crystal effects and let them dry a few hours...Love it! 

The "missing u" was stamped with a retired mini alphabet set, and I put some crystal effects on the little heart from the own punch to give it a bit more dimension.

And of course, the coordinating envelope line with another piece of DSP from the Sent with Love pack (on the clearance rack, get it before it's gone!).
