Make It Monday #100 - Over Size Me!

This week the Make It Monday Challenge is a milestone, #100, so I'm sure this challenge will draw a lot of attention!  This challenge was a good one for me as it let me do the one thing I often avoid, creating a card with an element that expands past the size of the front and with more bulk than usually fits in a regular A2 size envelope.  I love embellishments, and I have a great stash of them, but too often they go unused (sorry, my little button stash, for ignoring you far too long!).

 I chose a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Heart Prints Sentiments, and PTI Happy Spots paper for my Dark Chocolate (PTI) and pink (SU! Blushing Bride) card.  The sentiment I selected especially for the addition of the cute little trinket key.  I attached the little key by piercing a couple holes in the top layer heart and tied it securely with some floss, hiding most of the thread on the back side of the heart.

I decorated my over sized envelope that can accommodate my card by simply stamping a little flourish in coordinating Blushing Bride ink.

This was a fun paper craft challenge.  Hope you have a chance to play, too!  Have a great weekend.
