I like how cute this card turned out. I made a man card for cricut cardz challenge #60 and also added XOXO card  for peachy keen stamps challenge lets-face-it-friday, then I incorporated a trifold(my first one) for the cuttlebug spot tri-fold-cards-valentine challenge.  creative time for me Throwback-Thursday also asked to use a paper doll cart. I use to try to create one card per challenge, but got overwhelmed with trying to hit deadlines. now I'm getting use to combining 2-3 challenges and am finding it more enjoyable. Here is a pic of the card open. I places the trifold on the front of a regular folded card so I can add a note on the inside for my husband. what do you guy think?

Cartridges=xoxo-Sentimentals, football stuff-Everyday Paper Dolls
Faces= Peach Keen Stamp-Everyday Character Assortment#pk-490
White stiching and Eyes=Sakura Gelly Roll White #50( this is the best pen I have found for the eyes)
XOXO= colored the X's with Copic #R59 cardinal. I also ran them through my Xyon create a sticker. I also used my cuttlebug folder on the background of the XOXO's. also distressed the edges with Disstrezz-it-all
I Heart You= from my stash of stuff. I glued it to a metal tab for stability and attached it to the first layer only of the card so he can pull it open.
Sentiment= made on my computer, cut it out with Fiskar scallop circle punch.
