Cross Stitch Wishes - January SOTM

It's January already and time for the new Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month (SOTM) called Cross Stitch Wishes. This is the first of the three cards my January clubs will be making. 
I combined this stamp set with two others that go perfectly with the SOTM and also Valentines Day. The Happy Valentines day is from "Holiday Tags". The stitching at the top portion of the card and the Love you to Pieces is from "Stitch Wonder" stamp set. 

The paper pack is Chantilly, which will be retiring at the end of this month. 

The washi Tape is called Ruby Chevron and the red button is tied up with green bakers twine. 

The funny part of making this card is that I had two fabulous friends, Jolene and Crystal, over for a play date on Monday. My head was still in the Christmas mode and I just could not come up with a design using this stamp set. It took me two days to get my head back on straight!!! *Ü*

I love sketch challenges. This one from Your Next Stamp is perfect.

Challenges for this card :
Brown Sugar - Use Ribbon or Twine.
Card Makin Mamas - Anything Goes
