"L" is for LOVE

Good Sunday Morning to all of my cyber friends out there!  Do you ever feel as though you are too busy to think?  Well lately that is the way I am feeling with trying to get all my work done at home, work my outside job, do my crafting which is my way of relaxing and working on a May Wedding for my daughter.  Wow!  Any way, I did get this card done last night prior to going out with my daughter and her fiance, and of course let's don't forget my dear husband who is totally neglected, to talk even more about the wedding. 

This card was inspired by quite a few different challenges.  The sketch of course came from one of my favorite places to receive inspiration, Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge.  They have some great sketches, color challenges and even some technique training.  Love dropping by there.

It was also inspired by the Clean and Simple Saturday challenge at Christian Paper Crafts which was to use dry embossing on your card.  So as you can see I used that at the top of the card.  Just a little more added effect.

And also by SUO challenges where you are to do a Valentines Day Creation.  So as you can see, I think I also qualify for that one.  It has been a long time since I was able to do so many challenges with one card.  But as you can see, I did it!!!!! 

Everything on the card is Stampin' Up! except for the embossing at the top which was from a pack of cuddlebug edge embossing folders.  Cannot remember the name of them at this time.

Stampin' Up! Items Used:
Stamp Sets: Punch Potpourri (Hostess), Grateful Greetings
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler (around the small oval)
Designer Series Paper: Love Letter
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
