Love - Crazy For Challenges #73

Mornin'! It's Saturday so it's Crazy 4 Challenges day! Angela Wood is our host for February and for this first week, she's challenged us to make a Valentine card. Get all the deets at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog--we hope you'll play along with us this week!

I'm using MFT's Inspired By Love set for my Valentine card. I stamped the "Love" sentiment on some patterned paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out with one part of the Layered Labels Die-namics die set.

The music layer, using paper from MFT's Take Note digi paper, was cut out with another die from Layered Labels. For the bottom of the patterned paper layer, I used my Perfect Bracket Edge Die-namics die and the hearts were done with the Hearts A Plenty set. Some lace, some tea dyed seam binding and a twine-tied button finish it off!

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C73.
