Love and Hugs - Freshly Made Sketches and City Crafter Challenge

Hi!  One more quick post tonight to share a card I created for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 173 & the City Crafter Challenge week 248: Tell someone they matter.

What a great sketch AND a wonderful theme at City Crafter, don't you think?  I had so many ideas, but only enough time to make one card.  Arrrgggh.

So, here's my take on the 2 challenges.

I know it looks a bit like a Valentine card, but it isn't.   It's sending "love & hugs" to someone close to me, to remind that person how much she matters.
* Mushy alert!*  That's an inside joke, so I guess that person knows she'll be seeing this card arrive in the mail.  :)

I used some brand new designer series paper from Stampin' Up! for this card.  I love the patterns in this Stacked With Love DSP stack.  They're not just for Valentine's cards, either.

Thanks for taking a look today!
