It's Time For Another Paper Take Weekly Challenge!

Woo hoo!
I love Tuesdays 'cause it is a fresh start to a new PTW challenge!
This week we have an awesome sketch for inspiration.
First, I'll show you my card and then the sketch so you can see if my interpretation came close.  ;)

The image is my own digital illustration "I Love You BeeCause..."  that is available for instant download from Clear Dollar Stamps, and it's just $2.50!
Here are the rest of the sentiments that come with it. 

The papers are Basic Grey's "Sugar Rush". I also used some Ranger Perfect Pearls and Stickles and some Diamond Glaze. That pretty piece of ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon's ~ Ribbon of the Month Kit.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ "Valentine"
Everybody Art ~ "Favorite Things"
I used my favorite Basic Grey papers and I love flowers and Stickles!
City Crafter ~ "Sew Fun"
For Fun ~ "Make Everything Glitter"
If The Shoe Fits...~ "Friendship"
Cute Card Thursday ~  "1..2..3"
I used 1 image, 2 sentiments, 3 accent flowers
AI Factory ~ "Anything Goes"
Basic Grey ~ "Flower Power"
Creatalicious ~ "Ribbon and Love"
Pile it On ~ "Love Is In The Air"
Freshly Brewed ~ "Spread Some Love"
Totally Paper Crafts ~ "Add a heart"
Bunny Zoe ~ "Love is in the Air"
Paper Cutz ~ "Your Choice"
Southern Girls ~ "Totally Loved UP"
Kaboodle Doodles ~ "Bling It Up"
Crafty Card Makers ~ "Flowers"
Magical Mondays ~ "Flowers"
Wild Orchid Crafts ~ "Let's Get Sentimental"

Thanks so much for dropping by. I hope you will head on over to our Paper Take Weekly challenge and see the other girls inspiring creations!

A comment from you would "BEE" so sweet!  ;)
