Sketch Saturday # 140, Simon Says Stamp, Lily of the Valley # 83, Moving Along With The Times # 84 and Craft Us Crazy # 1

As I wasn't overly happy with my last card, what better way to motivate myself than to try another card.  So I started this one last night and finished it this morning. 

I am entering my card into five challenges : -

Sketch Saturday # 140 - Follow Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Love Is In the Air
Lily of the Valley # 83- Romance plus LOTV image
Moving Along With The Times # 84 - Red (as main colour)
Craft Us Crazy # 1 - Anything Goes (This is a new challenge blog)

Can't believe I got a few challenges to enter my card into, think I have only done this once before.  Normally only enter it into one or two at a time. Hope my card fits all these challenges.

I am pleased that I am still doing the insides of my cards as I go along.

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Patterned Paper - Cosmo Cricket - Mitten Weather (Christmas paper but think it works well as I don't have a lot of red papers)
Image - LOTV
Sentiment - LOTV (comes with image)
Coloured with Distress Inks
Martha Stewart Punches (heart border and branch)
Woodware Punches (flowers and circle)
Gems and Pearls - Mei Flower
Ribbon - Got this in The Works bookshop the other day. Thanks Mina for the heads up on this.

I am pleased with how this card turned out.

Thanks for popping by.  Hope the weather is better were you are.  We have gales and very heavy showers.  Enjoy your weekend and hope you can get a little time for crafting.
