Keep It Simple Sweetie!

This card was first inspired by my DD (Kim) DT challenge at 365 Cards, Day 178 - Imagine This: Sugar! And what could be sweeter than a Kiss and being called Sweetie? That was my take on this inspiration -

I was also inspired by the sketch challenge at Clean and Simple Stamping













The following challenges added the other elements to this card -

Off the Wall Craftiness for the color scheme

Penny's Challenge to use pink and green
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge to be Pretty in Pink
ArtfulInkables Think Ink said, "Bling it on Baby!"
Cute Card Thursday said, Die for a punch, uhmm, meaning "Don't use a punch..." ouch!
One Stop Craft Challenge to use the sentiment as the main focus
Sentimental Sunday to make a CAS + sentiment
Wild Orchid Challenge to make it sparkle
Crazy 4 Challenges asked to use a lattice, my "diamond embossed diamonds"
Creative Card Crew to Sparkle and Shine :)
