ODBD December Challenge

Our Daily Bread Designs is sponsoring its second monthly challenge over on the S&S blog. We are asked to make the sentiment on the front of the card shine. They offer prizes for crafters AND will sponsor shipping costs for up to two boxes. To get the two boxes, we need to get 50 cards (one per person, please) uploaded to the Inlinkz in the link above. Please play along, too!

Here's what I came up with. Please note that while the card is square, the overall dimensions (4.25" square) still fit in an A2 envelope because that is the size that OWH prefers.

The sentiment is one of my favorite Studio G clear stamps from Valentine's Day. The red border is done with a MS punch around the page set. The card includes my first real stitching, done with variegated red/pink DMC embroidery floss from my elementary school stash. I used to be so obsessed with making friendship bracelet!

This will be one of my last Valentine's Day-looking love cards. I plan to mail my box on Monday so Caro gets it before the 10th, which is the deadline for the Archway cookies challenge.

Cards shipped to OWH (as of 10/20/11): 1642
