DH's Valentine's card for MFT Sketch Challenge and Crazy 4 Challenges Color Inspiration

Good Morning, everyone!

I'm so excited about the card I am posting today.  It turned out just adorable and it's using one of my most favorite lines of stamps........MFT's A la Modes!!!

As always, I pick the stamp or set that I want to use and then I go looking for a sketch that it will work with.  I really wanted to participate in MFT's 1st Weekly Sketch Challenge of the year so I knew I would use theirs......but, I needed colors!

Since Valentine's Day is coming up quickly, I thought I should probably get my husband's card done this weekend while I was thinking of it.  There are also many color challenges centering around pinks this week.  When I saw the color inspiration on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog, I knew I would choose this one because I just love pink and browns together.

Here it is!!!

I just love paper-piecing these stamps.  You can't tell but the key is done in a gold glitter pen and it really looks awesome!
