Pastel Valentine

Last night I decided to take on a new kind of challenge. I looked at 4 different blog challenges, and I decided that I would really challenge myself by doing all 4 on one project. What was I thinking? At Die Cuttin Divas, the challenge was a sketch for a card. Ok, next is a theme. Scrappy Moms Stamps challenge was to create a Valentine's Themed project. Great! That covers the theme, plus over at Fantabulous Friday the challenge was to make a project including a heart. Valentine's Day and hearts? Perfect! So, I sat down and stared at all of my paper (if I haven't mentioned before, I am a paper hoarder). I took a look at my challenges again, and found the perfect one. Over at Craft Your Passion Challenges, their challenge this week was pastels! Ok, so a pastel, Valentine's Day card with a heart. I can do this. I hope. Enjoy!
