Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Good morning friends! Hope you're having a wonderful start to your week! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly! It's the first Tuesday of the month, so that means it's an "anything goes" challenge and we're sponsored by one of everyone's favorite companies, Lili of the Valley! The option for this challenge is to add a heart to your project.  This is what I came up with.

This is actually my class card for the month of February, so if you're coming to class, this is the card you'll be making.  This adorable image is a Penny Black stamp illistrated by the infamous Mo Manning.  Is she not the sweetest thing??!! She was stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers. And I must say that she really was a lot of fun to color. I then fussy cut her out and popped her up from the frame I created with a Martha Stewart punch around the page set. The DP is We R Memory Keepers Cotton Tails matted with Bazzill cardstock, and the fence is a Magnolia Doohickey die.  and the heart is from Cheery Lynn Designs. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are yet another Martha Stewart punch edged with some chalk ink for definition. I made the lucious bow using May Arts Silk ribbon and another Wild Orchid Crafts flower. Look at that face...she is so stinkin cute!!!

So that's it for me today! Please be sure to hop over to Papertake Weekly to check out my awesomely talented teammies creations for this challenge. Then we'd love it if  you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us for a chance to win an awesome prize from Lili of the Valley! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

I am submitting this to the following challenges:

As soon as I can get my plane ticket straightened out I am coming to this class! Do you mean to tell me that y'all make a whole card like this at every class? Someone would have to give me room and board!!!! It would take me at least 3 days - but I would be chatty Cathy the whole time. Your card is gorgeous - so many different companies used - that's fantastic and I really appreciate the hint about inking up the corners of the leaves. The only person I know that uses that many products is Tim Holtz! I certainly did enjoy all the pictures from CHA. Bye for now cute thing!
