Sew Many Challenges - Red/Pink/White Challenge & Lexi's Creations Challenge!

This week's challenge over at Sew Many Challenges is to use red/pink/white on your project.  I love this how great for Valentine's!  The cardstock on this card is papertrey ink and I embossed, however, the embossing doesn't show up very well in the picture.  I used my new love struck cartridge to cut out some hearts on my cricut and then I added some tulle which IRL looks pretty cute but again my photography skills just didn't capture it.  The lighter patterned paper is Basic Grey and I don't remember the other one as they are scraps I had left over.  The ribbon is papertrey ink and I colored Miki with copics and added a little glitter to his wings and the bow.  Our sponsor this week is Terry from Tellen's Place Designs and she has graciously donated a $10 gift certificate to Tellen's Designs!  Yeah!!!  Here is a little information about Terry and her store:

Tellen's Place Designs is the home of Tellen Design images.  These images are drawn by the owner, Terry's, son.  Terry thought it would be fun for her son to continue these images for her as he had done in 1999, when she first began selling her crafts at various venues.  With the digital world becoming such an excited and explosive place with thousands of images to delight everyone's fancy, it seemed natural to add to that universe.  Tellen's Place Designs became home to these images for a wide variety of reasons.  Having a home to call their own, this opened the door to creativity on so many levels; especially for beginners.  Adding card and mini album kits answered many calls to those who wanted to dabble in the scrap world but did not have the time or space to house all of the goods needed to "scrap a world fantastic."  Tellen's Place is the beginning, where it all started.  It is a place where Tellen Design images come to life through the weekly challenges.  We are delighted to share the digital world with others and even more delighted to sponsor Sew Many Challenges, another wonderful place to be.  We invite you to visit us at your next opportunity.

This card is made with this weeks Friday FREEBIE!  Well, one of them - Angela has a little something extra over there this week so be sure to stop in!  Anyway, I made this card with this weeks Lexi's Creations challenge in mind as it is "spotted or striped".  I love polka dots but I decided to go stripes on this one.  I like how it almost looks like wallpaper. 

So....not only will the winner of this week's red/white/pink challenge win Angela's Sew Many Cards images but also a $10 gift certificate to Tellen's Place Designs.   So come on and join us...who knows you might just be the next Sew Many Challenge's winner!!!  Plus....if you are stopping by before Sunday at midnight scroll down and enter my blog candy!
