Love You Much

Welcome by my blog today, everyone, and thanks for stopping by.  I'm sharing a sweet little Valentine card I made that I hope to share in a few challenges.  I hope you've had time to get some crafting done during this busy time of year.  I have an upcoming shoulder surgery, so I've been trying to work ahead as much as possible.
My card uses some Lemon Craft patterned papers, a Paper Sweeties stamped sentiment and heart die-cut, a few white sequins, and lots of fun embellishments.  I plan to send this card to one of my nieces for Valentine's Day.  Here's to hoping I get it in the mail on time!  LOL
As you can see, I used Charcoal Grey Seam Binding, Cream Seam Binding, Ivory Burlap String, Pink Burlap String, and lots of gorgeous Mulberry Flowers and Flower Stamens.  I also did some machine stitching and added some Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Leaves to accent the flower clusters.
Here are the challenges where I'm sharing my card:

Dies R Us Challenge Blog - Challenge #88 Anything Goes - I used Sue Wilson Designs Finishing Touches Branch Dies (green branches peeking out)

Scrapy Land Challenge Blog - Challenge #81 - Anything Goes using dies.  I used a Sue Wilson Designs Finishing Touches branch die-cut and a Paper Sweeties heart doily die-cut.
