Guess How Much I love you inspired cards


So my crafty little brain went on a tangent with a number of different card challenges...  I started off brainstorming for favorite books that I could use for the CAS-ual Friday "What's Black and White and Read All Over" and decided to use the fabulous children's book Guess How Much I Love You because I used this fabulous Unity sentiment on a card last month and thought it was perfect.  Because the sentiment is the main feature of this card I'm going to enter it in the Wee Memories "Sentiment" challenge (and mostly because I just got my first order from Monika's I Love It All Etsy shop and I'm in heaven.  Click here for a peak at my goodies).  The other challenge that this card works for is the All Things Unity "anything goes" challenge (because the text is actually an inked up PTI Bookprint impression plate).  And lastly I've used the Play Date Cafe "black and white with a splash of red".




And then I used basically the same ideas and made this card with the September Unity sketch.
