Double Challenges

This week I have decided to play along with the challenges on the 365 Card blog again. Of course, I am already a day or so behind, but I am catching up - in a round about way. This card is for Day 218, Monday's challenge, which was to 'make the most of it'. The idea is to choose a paper company and then a line of paper from the company and choose three patterned papers from that line. So, I chose a paper from Basic Grey that came out a long time ago, but I fell in love with it when it did - Bittersweet. I chose my sketch from Twisted Sketches #027. On Twisted sketches, along with the sketch, the twist was to use 'love' anyhow, anyway. One of the papers I chose has hearts all over it - it is the base card mat - but then I added the double hearts to the flower arrangement just because I had them and have not had the chance to use them. Yesterday while I was taking a break from reorganizing, I ventured out to the LSS and found this Tim Holtz die. There are two on the same die, so that is nice and I had planned on using the other one. I have very few sentiment stamps at my disposal right now - so when I saw this one, it didn't quite fit the width of the die. So, I decided to stamp it in two sections - with the 'you are' first and then the 'awesome' under the scallop - however, when I stamped that - I did it upside down! lol So, I set that aside and grabbed this die. I am not as crazy about this one as the other - but I decided it was cut, so might as well use it.
Now, I REALLY need to break out of this BROWN theme and go with something brighter - though I DO like the look of the brown, This one just seems SO plain to me!! Oh, I did spritz it with some gold glow smooch. I also picked up a few more colors of the smooch - this stuff is SO fun!!

Thanks for stopping by - hope you enjoy your day.

That stiriped paper is glorious & I love the double hearts charm you added. I take absolutely ages over a card so worry not about that.
