Wonderful You ~ rs#33

Today's post is a little late.  Sorry about that.  I've been dealing with a migraine headache for 2 days now.  Ugh!  But I really wanted to get this week's Retro Sketches challenge done on time.  It is just so cute.  I'm feeling a little better tonight, so I decided to give it a shot. 

Don't you just love it?!!!  Okay, perhaps it's just me, but for such a simple design it makes me want to squeal.  Quietly of course. 

The sketch looks like it has some stitching and I've been itching to try out sewing on my cards.   Not too bad for my first attempt.  (If I do say so myself.) 

The colors in Stampin' UP!'s Orchard Harvest paper work great with this week's challenge at the Play Date Cafe.  It was a happy accident for me.  I actually put together this card before seeing the challenge.  I guess great minds really do think alike.  :)  They are having a fun week of celebrating their anniversary over there, so you should go check them out.

Any ideas on what to make with all the other hearts I cut out?  Perhaps I will use them as confetti when I send this card.  :)

I used linen thread to hang my hearts.  When the card was almost done I sprayed it with some Shimmer Mist so it has a little sparkle.

One last look at this card and then I'm heading to bed. 

Come back tomorrow to watch my video showing how to make this 3-D "pumpkin".  

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
