My Favorite Things...

TGIF... Thanks for stopping by :) Today's card is for this week's Limited Supply Challenge "LSC201" over at Splitcoast. The challenge is use your favorite things.

Stamps - A set from your favorite stamp company. (Stampin' Up! Happy Heart Day)
Cardstock and ink - Your favorite color combination. (Can you possibly guess what that might be?! Kraft, Pink & White)
Embellishments and tools - 2 or 3 of your favorites from this list: brads/eyelets/hardware, punches, ribbon/trim/cord/twine, Nestabilities/Big Shot/Sizzix/Slice/Cricut/Cuttlebug, flowers, chipboard/grungeboard, piercing/faux stitching/stitching. (Sizzix, Cuttlebug & Ribbon - I went over so I hope they don't mind)
Technique - No limit here, you can even use your favorite technique. (Embossing)
Here is a close-up of the mouse. The image was stamped onto the heart and again on another piece of Kraft cardstock. Then I stamped the image again but this time on a piece of pink pirouette cardstock. The mouse and the heart were cut out and added to the first image. This way, I don't have to worry about cutting out his tail...

For added fun, I sponged all of the layers except for the white layers. Doing this technique made the card pop! For extra detail, I added the ribbon, button & flowers.

Now that Christmas is over and Valentine's Day is around the corner, I am having a blast creating some fun & adorable cards!!

Tomorrow I will be sharing a card for Our Creative Corner. We have added three NEW girls. We hope you stop by and say hello and if you have time, play our challenge.
Have a wonderful weekend,
