Pile on the Love

I'm headed to my MIL's for dinner tonight (I'm quite excited that I don't have to cook!) and I wanted to make her a fun Valentine's card to go with the box of chocolates I've got for her.

Since it seems that most challenges out there are for Valentines I was really able to pile on quite a few challenges:

Pile It On: To the One You Love
Just Us Girls: Split Negative Technique
Stars and Stamps Technique Challenge: Heat Embossing (heart stamp was embossed with red and white)
Curtain Call Color Challenge: Real Red, Kraft and Vanilla (or white in my case)
Card Positioning Systems: sketch
Cute Card Thursday: In the name of Love
Creative Belli Blog: Ribbons (XO behind the heart)
Our Creative Corner: Something Old (the ribbon has been in my stash for at least 2 years!)
Stampin' for the weekend: Valentine Theme
Creative Card Crew: Valentine
Penny's Challenges: Valentine/Love
AllSorts Challenge: 3,2,1 (I used 3 colors for paper, 2 colors of embossing powder and 1 ribbon)
The Pink Elephant: Valentine

Wow, I think that's all!

Anyway, I'm off to play with my nephews, but after work tomorrow it's a bit more crafting for me. If I'm good and get my schoolwork done I plan on making the most of my day off on Monday too. Thanks for stopping by, and if you have time check out this week's Unscripted Sketch!

Smiles,
