D'Amour Allure card for challenges

Happy mid week!! Lots to do, but my week so far is pretty good and I hope yours are good too :o) I can't wait to share with you this card. I made this card not only because I wanted to use this cute stamp, but also I wanted to try out my new sewing machine.

Yes, I finally got a sewing machine which is my wedding anniversary present from my hubby although our wedding anniversary is not until Jan 28th and it's just days away. However I opened my presents and how could I not try it :op

Today's card is made using the Valentines Collection from D'Amour Allure. I found that the stamp is not only giving me a perfect outline, but also very fun for coloring too. I also use this card for multiple challenges too and they are for:

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #38 - Sketch
Little Red Wagon #13 - Hearts
Creative Inspirations #45 - Feminine
Stampavie and more Challenge #79 - Love card/Valentin
The Pixie Cottage Challenge #8 - Pink and red
Crafty Creations Challenge #51 - Valentines and Love
Belli Challenge #83 - Hearts
Allsorts Challenge Week #36 - Hearts & flowers
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #88 - Freestyle
Lexi's Creations Challenge #6 - Valentines

Here is my finished card:

A shot to show you the embellishment from Queen & Co (the letters and hearts) The little transparent clip is from Around the Block

To match this love theme, here is a little "XO" piece from Queen & Co. I punched a little hold and use a brad to hold this little embellie which can be move around this brad.

Thanks for looking and will see you again tomorrow for a DT altered project :o)
