Just for You

A combination of two challenges led me to create this card. Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge # 367, a weekly challenge, began on Monday, May 4, and will end on Sunday evening, May 10, 2020.  
Color My Heart Color Dare #393, a biweekly challenge, began on Friday, May 8, and will end on Thursday evening, May 21, 2020. This particular challenge is Tictactoe, requiring three colors in a row. Players are also permitted to add any additional colors from the board plus black and white. My additional colors are Green Apple and Lagoon. The use of colors not on the board will disqualify your project.
Following the sketch, I layered multiple patterned papers to a red card base. This was followed by the matted rectangle and banners using foam tape for dimension. The butterfly and small sentiment were stamped and punched, the white stitching was added and these elements were added to the card front. (A small sentiment was a sketch requirement.) A few pearls were added. The inside was decorated using coordinating paper and a punched butterfly.
