Hi there! 
Happy Friday to you!  So happy to see the weekend arrive!  Do you have big superbowl plans this weekend?  I'm hoping that the Broncos win...go Broncos!
I'd like to share with you a card I made for City Crafter Challenge. 
The theme is Love Story this week.  I thought I'd use my PTI Love sentiment die with pretty glittery hearts as the focal point.  I started sewing around the edges, but ran out of thread and the stitching was all wrong. So, I added the side borders with pearls.  A crafter has to adjust at!  But, I'm pleased with the final outcome. 

Please stop back tomorrow since I have a sweet card for the Paper Sweeties February Challenge.  Thank you for viewing my card!  Have a great weekend, hugs!


Paper:  PTI, SU, GCD Studios
Dies:  Spellbinder's-Lacy Squares
           PTI:  Love Sentiment
Punch:  Martha Stewart
Ribbon:  Jo-Ann Fabric
Hearts:  SU
Pearls:  Queen &Co.

  6. Very pretty and elegant card, Maria! Crafters need to tweek things sometimes, so don't worry about the stitching. This is what makes a handmade card unique.
