Card Patterns Sketch

I have never played along with Card Patterns, but it's a great challenge blog and this is the year that I'm trying new things! I saw the sketch and loved it and immediately thought of a Valentine. The sketch for this week is:

I made this card in no time flat... I already had the felt heart laying on my desk with the die cut (just waiting... begging to be used!):

The card base is Paper-Source in strawberry, the background is a scrap from my stash, I believe it's Bo-Bunny, the die cut and stamp is from Taylored Expressions, the "XOXO" sticker is SRM, and the heart and fabric were put together by moi. I added some cross stitches to the die cut and "ruffled" the fabric just slightly by running my thread through the middle and giving it a little tug.

And closer...

I love the end result of my card and hope you do too! The Card Patterns sketch was fun to play with, and I hope you get a chance to play this week! :)
