Crafty Critter BGC #16

Here's my card for our Crafty Critters challenge #16. Love is in the Air! hosted this go around by Tracey :) *hiya girl waving*!! We were to use the colors, red, pink & white with black as an accent. Today's the last day to upload...Wow I'm cuttin' it close!


The background dp is SU! Sweet Always (retired). I distressed it a bit. I used one of the stamps from Itty Bitty backgrounds set to make the black polka dots on the white c/s. I mounted the hearts from the Simply Said set on real red c/s then sewed a few stitches on the side. I used the eyelet border punch on the bottom with a piece of red rick rack ribbon on top. I stamped a sentiment from Simply Said set then punched it out with the lg. oval. I finished it off by inking with WW craft ink and added pearls at the top.

I got a couple other challenges in on this card too:

Little Red Wagon ~ Polka Dots
Crazy4Challenges 20 ~ Sketch
Paper Sundaes ~ Sketch (yeah they were pretty much the same sketch...great huh?! :))

Until next time...
Blessings...
