Be Mine...Valentine - Crazy 4 Challenges #20

Ready for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge? Well, Lori's got a fun sketch for us today--you can check it out at the C4C blog.

My card uses a Waltzingmouse set called Seasons of Love, stamped on Kraft paper with PTI Ripe Avocado ink, with the sentiment done in Ocean Tides. Patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Life Stories collection. For the ribbon treatment, I punched a 1/4" round hole and just threaded the ribbon through it, then tied a button around the ribbon with twine to hold it in place. I used crocheted lace across the bottom and attached buttons to it with twine, as well. I love this sketch and how this card turned out!!!

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
