Hello Crafty Peeps!

Finally got some time in my craft room over the weekend so I've got some cards to share this week.  Might have to do a couple posts a day this week to meet card challenge deadlines!

Today's card is for Love My Tapes March Challenge: Get out those recipe books!  Here's the recipe they want you to work with:

1.  Use a negative(s)
2.  Use 5 different washi tapes
3.  Use ONE word
4.  Use handstitching
5.  Use an envelope

1.  I used the negatives from punching hearts out of some washi.
2.  5 different washi tapes, count 'em!
3.  "Dream" is my one word.
4.  Dream is handstitched!  (They didn't say I had to be the one to handstitch!)
5.  My envelope is the focal point.

I was inspired by my recent win of Basic Grey's Mint Julep collection.  I got tons of fabulous products and couldn't wait to use them. When I saw one of the ingredients was an envelope, I knew I wanted to use the ones I had won as well as the stitched label.  So cute!

Folks,  it's a radomly-drawn winner and there are currently only 4 entries and you still have 2 days to enter.  You have good odds, so go get your craft on and win some LMT goodness!!

Since I didn't use any stamps on this, I'm going to enter it into Casual Friday's CFC95: No Stamps Challenge.

And since I've definitely used washi tape, I'll be entering it in Moxie  Fab World: Washi Tape Challenge.  And let's not forget their Emphasize the Negative challenge which this card fits into as well!

Go get your craft on!

Supplies Used:
Paper:  Simple Stories - Fabulous
Envelope/Stitched Cloth/Basic Grey - Mint Julep
Small heart punch
