My Favorite Things

Robin of My Pink Stamper is holding a challenge where you can make a project incorporating something that is your favorite.  This may be your favorite style, technique, cart, colors...anything that is your favorite.  So I put together everything I loved about crafting and made my card.

I am entering this card into You Had Me At Craft's Link Party.

Sooo what do you get when you mix craft card stock, SU! supplies, a Gypsy, faux stitching, twine, cute sentiments, a PKS face and embossing?? 

This cutie right here:

I added glossy accents to the eyes and lips.  The cheeks are created using chalks and a white gel pen.

My biggest obsession is my Gypsy.  This sentiment explains exactly how I feel! I really don't know what I would do without my Gypsy! 

This is now my all time favorite card! I hope you guys enjoy it!

I loved this card so much that I even made a video!


Plantin SchoolBook: Heart- cut at 5.20" in height welded together for the base.  I also cut a separate layer at the same measurement for the front of the card so that it covers the fold of the card.  The pink layer was cut at 4.72" in height. 
Cricut Everyday: Gypsy at 1.82"
Twinery: Pink Sorbet twine
Provo Craft: Cuttle Bug Polka Dot folder
PKS: Face from the Princess 1 1/8ths set
My Creative Time: Sentiment- My Favorite Sayings
SU!: Chalks, Crumb Cake card stock, black embossing powder, embossing buddy
Recollections: Light pink paper
