More 2011 Challenges!

I made this 6x6 Valentine's card for my friend in Louisiana.  We are in a monthly card swap conducted at Scrapbook Place.  Each month is a new theme, a new partner and lots of fun onboard.  All that was required this month is any type of window card.  So I chose a Valentine since it is getting closer to that wonderful holiday.

Luckily this card also fit into Joan's Garden Challenge.  So I decided to enter this card in Challenge #1 for 2011 since her requirements are:

Make a card or project this week and use the following:
1. Use some kind of animal, bird or whatever (my whatever is the quilled flower and making a heart out of rhinestones)
2. Use a floral background paper (Anna Griffin I believe)
3. Do something that takes you out of your comfort zone (matching up the 4 squares and putting the piece back together so it looks great)
4. Use some kind of Die (the tag is a die - the quilled flower was cut as a die in strips)

I distressed all edges with TH  Tea Dye distressed ink - love that stuff!  A rhinestone was hot glued into the center of the flower and leaves were pop dotted for emphasis.  I stamped On Valentine's Day in lower right corner.

Hope you like it.
