LILY PAD CARDS NEW CHALLENGE

There is a new monthly challenge on Lily Pad Cards!!  The uber-talented Virginia Lu will be providing an inspiration photo called "Virginia's View" for these challenges.  Here is the first one:


We are to use the photo for our inspiration and also incorporate a Valentine's theme into our card. I love these colors, don't you??

Here is my card:



Could I be anymore literal here??

Penny Black brush stroke image, Memento markers, Hero Arts sentiment, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, black pen stitching and a polka dot ribbon.

Also want to give a shout out to another new DT member for Lily Pad Cards - Barb Engler!  Barb is one of the sweetest gals around and her cards are always beautifully crafted.  Congrats, Barb!

Gotta' go shovel some snow!

Aww, you're so sweet, Joy - thanks for the mention! We received a bit of snow here too, but I made my boys go out and shovel, since I've been sick with a cold and cough. Love your card! What a perfect take on the photo! Those hearts are so lovely! Thanks for playing with us at Lily Pad Cards! :)

Loving this wonderfully artsy card design, Joy! You totally "got" Virginia's inspiration and ran with it all the way to fabulous! I'm so glad you joined us for the first Virginia's View challenge at Lily Pad Cards.
