Well this card is a first for me, the first time I have ever combined so many challenges in one card! It was FUN, and that’s what it is all about right?  (ignore the oopsie on the sewing around the edge.)

I started with Card Patterns for the CUTE sketch and then used Kelly Jo’s Color Chef #34 for the color scheme…black, yellow, and white. Just Us Girls wants stitching on your project..well I have hand stitching and machine stitching on this one. Practical Scrappers want bling..so I added some bling to my flowers. Saturday Spotlight want Valentine/love cards with no hearts….no hearts on this one.

If you have any questions about this card please drop me an email. All the CS is CTMH as are the stickers.

I have 2 Girl Scouts in the house and I am going to shamelessly offer anyone out there in blog land the chance to buy some cookies…but mostly I wanted to let you know about their Cookies for Soldiers drive. We are asking our friends and family to purchase a box of cookies to be sent to a solider. We hope to get a bunch of donated cookies and then we will mail them along with cards made by the girls and signed by people who buy a box to be donated. So if you are interested in spending $3.50 on a box of cookies to be sent to a solider PLEASE drop me an email.

Stay safe and thanks as always for the wonderful comments you leave.

Enjoy!
