Card Patterns #149, Color Throwdown #176, RCC37

Looking for the Green Eggs and Hambo blog hop? Scroll down, this is my 3rd post of the day (can you tell I have the day off from work??)

Check out this adorable Valentine's Day card!

To make this card, I combined 3 challenges (something I've never done before!). Here is the sketch from the Card Patterns Blog:

Here are the colors I used from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:

And finally, I'm entering this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge that was issued by my close friend Suzanne! Find the challenge here.

So back to my card using Paper Smooches!

The cardstock is all PTI, the card was cut using a Sizzix scallop circle die and the circle with Nestabilities. The border die is from PTI.

The big heart is from a Sizzix Bigz die from SU (hearts and brackets). The ribbon is from the dollar bin at Michaels.

I did outline the monster with BG10, but it didn't turn out as blue as usual because its on the kraft. It still makes him jump off the paper, though.

I'm just loving this card, it turned out so cute!! Thanks for stopping by :)
