You Make My Heart Flutter...

I definitely had a very successful search for new Sketches and Challenges this week. Ran across the Sweet Stop that has a new card sketch every Saturday! This was a really sweet sketch and I had a lot of fun making it my own. I combined it with Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge, where we were asked to use Chocolate, Kraft, Cream and a Bright Pink. Of course, I used my own CTMH colors and think it worked well.

Now all I have to do is make an envelope to fit it :) The finished size is 7 x 3.5"

Papers: CTMH-- That's Amore and Stampin' Up Bella Rose

Colors: Tulip, Chocolate, Bamboo and Colonial White

Stamp: Stampin' Up Great Friend

Embellishments: CTMH-- Colonial White Embroidery Floss, Clear Sparkles and Brads

Technique: Hand-Stiching and Foam Squares for the 3rd square




I was able to use my Slice to make the final square to add just a little elegance to the card. I have to say that I absolutley LOVE my Slice. Living in a one bedroom apartment doesnt really allow for larger tools (like the Cricut) so when the Slice came out, I absolutely had to have it! It fits perfectly in my small space :)
