Motivet Week 46 Challenge

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Motivet was holding a weekly challenge every Friday!  I made this card using their Week 46 Challenge sketch.  I adore their awesomely adorable stamps, and have used Dexter asking Doraline for a kiss under the mistletoe for this sketch ... hence the sentiment "Naughty"!  LOL!  If you've not checked out their stamps ... you simply must!

Here's the pull out tag:

Doraline and Dexter

This is a card I made just for fun to take my mind off of my parents leaving from their stay with me.  They came to visit us for a week and I always enjoy it so much when I see them. It seems that I got a couple of cards done in record time since I did not want a minute to "think" and end up tearing!  LOL! 

So this is a card with no sketch in mind ... just a plain and simple cut and paste!  LOL!


The Fun Stuff:

Paper:  My Minds Eye
Flowers:  Miscellaneous
Image:  Dexter and Doraline from Motivet
Other:  Velvet ribbon, silver bells, pearl sprays

Have a great day!
