PPCCCMCSBEBC...three challenges!

I don't usually combine a lot of challenges, but I really wanted to do the Paper Players color challenge...and then I needed a sketch so I saw the Create with Connie and Mary sketch...then Lesley told me about a new challenge blog and saw they have an embossing challenge going on so....this card was born!

I am tired of Christmas cards too!  I  love this set from the Holiday Mini, You Are Loved.  The heart image is embossed in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla. The DSP strip is from the Holly Berry Bouquet DSP, also in the Holiday Mini.  I used the Lovely Lines embossing folder on the gold layer, and stamped another image from You Are loved in Vanilla Craft in on the Very Vanilla layer.  The sentiment, also from that set, is embossed in Cherry Cobbler and adhered with a Cherry Cobbler brad.
I just realized the Paper Players Challenge was a CAS one...oops!  I hope the PP ladies forgive me!! lol

Here are the challenges and links in case you want to join in!

stamps:  You Are Loved
inks:  Versamark, Very Vanilla Craft
cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Brushed Gold, Holly Berry Bouquet
