And Now for Something Completely Different...

Good evening!  So right now I'm thinking of many, MANY things...
1. It is ridiculously late for me to be up posting this (I'm in PA - it's almost 2am!)
2. This week's 2S4Y challenge closes at 2am EST
3. Today, I was tired of making holiday cards
4. I also wanted to use my new Lawn Fawn stamps
5. I saw Harry Potter 7 part I and it was incredible!

So if you put all of this together, here's how it goes: I crafted this afternoon, excited to see HP and wanting to create something that was not all about winter or christmas.  I created this card (which I really happen to like!), and then went out galavanting with the hubs to see Harry Potter and meet up with some friends.  The night got late, and when we came home I immediately fell into bed.  While laying there, I remembered that I NEVER POSTED MY CARD!  OOPS!  Lol... so here I am and I'm determined to get this entered, last minute style, in this week's 2S4Y challenge.  Here's the card:

I really like the way that both the paper piecing and the colors came together on this one!  I also used Lawn Fawn's Bows and Holly in a non-traditional way, which is always super fun!  =)  Here are some more close up shots: 
As mentioned before, this card was inspired by two challenges:
1. 2 Sketches 4 You Sketch #66
2. Off the Wall Craftiness Color Challenge #34

Well, I hope you enjoy this card!  I'll be back tomorrow with a much more lengthy entry!  =)
