Makeover Monday Challenge #12

Hello Friends! It's almost Friday! It's been a busy week for me and I'm looking forward to doing nothing this weekend. I got a Kindle for Christmas and it's loaded with books...I think I'll just veg on the sofa and read. Sometimes I need to be a sloth for a few days. I started my Spring cleaning early this year, I was getting antsy. Don't be too impressed, I only managed to clean one room and I didn't even finish that. I guess I'm not as well as I thought...three steps forward, two steps back. Oh well.

I was able to put together a card for the MMC from the Paper Crafter's Library. I just love the patterned papers in the My Mind's Eye Love Me Collection. And that is what I used for my card...

stamp: Craft Smart(Michael's)
patterned paper: Love Me Collection(MME)
card stock: Rustic Cream, Pure Poppy(Papertrey Ink)
ink:  Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush(Papertrey Ink)   Versamark(Tsukineko)
other: White embossing powder(American Crafts)   Maraschino Baker's Twine(The Twinery)   Garnet Glitter(Martha Stewart Crafts)   Heart Border Punch and Trio of Hearts Punch(Stampin' Up!)  

 Cute paper, right? Like a Valentine bingo! I think the card is pretty straight forward. I didn't do anything terribly fancy here. If you take a look at the original piece, you will see where I drew my inspiration. I used a single patterned paper, hearts, twine, border punch. I like these challenges because they have helped me to look at projects and be able to use bits and snippets to make it my own. Fun! Fun!

That's all I have for you today. I thank you for dropping in. Have a wonderful weekend!
