Hello all!  I have a new card created for the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this time is everyone's favorite again..."Anything Goes".  I hope to see you all join in on this.

Our sponsors this fortnight are

Prize: Stamp set and 6x6 pad of choice

Prize: $25 gift certificate

Prize: 2 images of choice

One of my favorite places is Heartfelt Creations.  My sister and I take classes from them when we go to the Mega Meet in Michigan.  I just love there products and am working on my collection.

I was given this beautiful digi from Julia Spiri called "The Butterfly Hat".  This is appropriately named as there are so many butterflies.  Julia Spiri has many gorgeous hat ladies and such pretty digis.   I decided to use her for my sister-in-law's birthday card.

As I was scanning challenges looking to see if there was a sketch out there to use with what I had colored, I ran across one that I liked.  Boy was I sad to see that it would end before this post goes live.  I think this is the second time I have done this.  I need to check dates better.  I showed the sketch below as I thought this was perfect for this image.  

This week one of my church sister's daughter Glynn was in a horrible car crash with her husband.  Her husband is stable after many surgeries but Glynn is not.  She is currently in a coma on life support.  Please pray for her and this family.  Prayer is a very powerful thing.  I hope you will join me in praying for them.

Thanks for coming to visit my blog today.  Please stop by LTSCB and check out all the wonderful inspiration the DT have made for you.

Have a blessed day!

I used the same sketch, too. Argggg . . . so frustrating when you miss it, isn't it? Your card is beautiful. I love how you distressed all the edges and how bright the image is; it really pops against the "vintage" background.
