I knew I wanted it to resemble subway art, be left-alligned, and have the saying long enough to fill the card with words differing in width. So I thought of my saying and scribbled the idea down. Well, I didn't get around to making the card until tonight...late tonight...so technically Thursday morning. :) I die cut all the letters and was just going to leave it pink with white underneath, but the card just wasn't quite what I wanted. And there was this little nagging in the back of my mind from the word "love" in the love letters part of the challenge. I tried justifying that a thank you card in itself is an expression of love, but I wasn't totally convinced. Anyway, I decided to take a break, and do a little blog hopping. When I went to the CASE Study Challenge blog I saw this amazing card by Teri Anderson (who has total celebrity status in my book).

Immediately after seeing Teri's card I knew how to finish my card. I loved the colors, the patterns filling the negative space, and the mix of words and hearts. I grabbed my PTI scraps and a few stamps to recreate the polka dot and striped patterns, found a heart (so the "love" nagging would go away), and ta-dah! my card was finished. And I'm in love. :)Supplies
