DD Grateful for You

This card is for a few of the Dirty Dare challenges on Splitcoast. I had such a great time making this card!! I was able to use my new In Bloom set from Papertrey along with the new color Scarlet Jewel. This color is so gorgeous!!! The sketch was such a fun one and I tried a new to me technique Paper Tole. It didn't turn out as well and I am thinking it might have to do with my paper, it is pretty thick!!! But it was fun just the same. I hand stitched around the hearts which was a lot of fun, I have done a lot of cross stitching (not near as much as I used to since starting to make cards!!) so it was a lot of fun for me to incorporate my two favorite hobbies in 1 card!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
