It's almost the month of LOVE... well, we should have love in our hearts at all times... even when the dog is chewing up your favorite slippers or someone is eating that last piece of chocolate!! LOL!! Digressing a little here. This card uses one of my fav color combos {if you've been here before, you know!} Kraft, cherry cobbler, black, and vanilla!!! Pretty straightforward... used a Jenni Bowlin card and MFT's Clearly Sentimental About Love {if you haven't checked out this series of stamps, you should, great sentiments!} and a few mini rolled roses with pearls.

Card is for the MFT Guest Designer Challenge this month... a recipe for Love. One patterened paper, 2 colors of cardstock with a neutral {white/cream doesn't count-thank goodness} and three types of embellishements. Now, you may be saying to yourself... counting embellishements "technically" that I have too many... well, this is the way I "see" it. Pearls in mini rolled roses don't count as those roses HAD to have a center, and the black paper came stitched, hehehe!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

TFL!! Gorgeous weather here today. Sun shining, 60 degrees, and top down on the convertible!! Who could ask for anything more!!
