Sweet & Loved, Two Challenges in One!

I couldn’t help myself. I had to use pink on my card. Pink seems to be my new favorite color. Of course, this time it worked out really well. I wanted to do a challenge, and it called for anything with checkered paper. Guess what? Just happened to have some pink checkered paper lying around. Can you believe it? Well, I also had thought about another challenge I thought I would try. I mixed them together. Never thought I could pull it off, but here it is. Just see what you think. The two challenges come from CPS (Card Positioning Systems) and it is the layout sketch, and the checkered paper challenge is A Spoon Full of Sugar. You should really check out both sites.

Believe it or not, I actually took the time to write down the items used on this card. Sometimes I have no idea what I’ve used, but since most of the things used today are new, I had it right in front of me as I opened the packages. Thank you so much for stopping by and do stop by again soon! Hope you have a nice Monday.
