Paper Sweeties January Inspiration Challenge #15

Happy New Year! I hope that 2014 brings you happiness and prosperity. We're spending a quiet evening at home with family tonight.  It's also the beginning of a new month and time for a new Inspiration Challenge at Paper Sweeties!  Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, my card this month has a love theme.

I combined a modern hexagon pattern with more traditional heart shaped doilies for a modern vintage mash up.  My card features the Banner Wishes stamp set. Here is the inspiration photo for this month's challenge.

Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish — the more times you play, the more chances you have to win!
