Growing Love

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for two different challenges.  Both blogs are new to me.  One of the perks of being on a DT you get to see all sorts of new places :).  It's kinda like blog-surfing with a purpose I guess.



I am entering this card into the following challenges.  Inkspirational's first challenge which is to use:


 I really like these colours together & was pleasantly surprised that I had them in my stash (Don't you love when that happens).
I then used this sketch by Freshly Made Sketches to tie it all together.  I really love how my card turned out.  I think this would be a great Valentines  or Anniversary card.

Thanks for stopping by today & happy crafting my friends

Paula - you have been busy searching the challenges and rallying to them. This is a great card! I never would have tackled those colors, but you nailed it! Love that cute heart image and the scalloped border. Happy weekend.
