Hello all my dear crafty friends! I hope you are having a FANTASTIC FRIDAY! I know I am going to have a great day. You know how sometimes you wake up and just feel a great day coming? OK, that is my day today.

And to start it out I am submitting this card to the Stars and Stamps January ODBD Challenge (Use THREE patterned papers on your card!) as well as the Splitcoaststampers (TLC359 ~ Best of 2011 ~ (1/9/12)) where I chose TLC304 Sewing/Stitching as my “Best of”……and here is my card


I actually ended up with 4 patterned papers, but I hope that is ok.



I chose these gorgeous papers from MME Lost & Found collection and then added a butterfly stamp in burgundy on the inside to tie it together.  The sentiment is one I printed from my computer just using a word processing program.  The burgundy panel is cut using Spellbinders Fancy Tags and just using the negative so the base panel can show through. 

I do like the way this card turned out and I hope you do too! Please let me know what you think.

Complete instructions are listed below, so if you want all the details, please scroll down.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my card today and will leave comments before you leave! Thanks for stopping by….
