CASual Fridays meets JAI meets Annabelle

I made a card yesterday.  It was a total train wreck.  I wasn't feeling 100%, with a headache and general ickiness, so I thought I'd try a colour scheme challenge combined with a sketch challenge, to make my life a little easier - it didn't work.  Too much going on all at once - a total mish mash.  I'm not even going to post a photo of the card, it was that bad.

Anyway, this morning, I saw Cath Edvalson's "Oh my moxie fab!" post at Moxie Fab world, and it jolted me back into Clean and Simple mode quick smart!

For this card, I used the simple colour scheme challenge at Just Add ink (Reds and white), as well as CASual Friday's "On the Red Carpet" challenge - the film is "Love Actually" - one film made up of lots of little love stories :)  And this week's challenge at Annabelle Stamps is "Say it with hearts" - and Lilypad cards has a patterned paper challenge - it all fits quite nicely, really! 


The reason I mentioned the train wreck of a card is that this card was made from scraps left over from the disaster!  So it wasn't a complete waste of time!
