You warm my heart

This is a card I made for the challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot. We had to make a card for a spouse or friend (or both!). Here's mine:

I used Sassafras Lass papers, Odd Bird Planet stamps (available here in Australia from Lime Tart), black and white gingham ribbon (an all-time fave), a button from my (ever-increasing!) stash and of course my trusty sewing machine. If you look closely, I also distressed the edges here and there.

I Cuttlebugged a border across the blue cardstock underneath (you can just see it peeking out on the very left hand side of the photo above), and I cut out a couple of hearts (from a Cuttlekids die) and a butterfly. The blue cardstock is shimmery, so it's a bit hard to get a front-on photo of this card.

I put this card on my bedside table so that when I woke up this morning it would make me smile.....and it did! My day is already off to a good start :)
