Challenge Friday and a giveaway

Hello All!
This month has just flew by, it's already January 27th, which means YOU have exactly 4 days left to enter
this giveaway.  My cute mom turned 79 this month and in her honor we are celebrating with a BIG gift to you!  Whoopy!!!

Recently I found Card Patterns Blog and am so excited, cause I feel like I can actually DO some of these challenges. Ya'll know what I'm talking about, you see some challenge that ask for a red, white, puke green with purple roses layout.  Not that there is anything wrong with a red, white, puke green and purple roses layout. It's just that I am green with envy less talented than the woman that can ROCK that layout AND make you wish you were the ONE that was so clever. Darn you***fist shaking***
 Am I right?

Anyway....there was a sketch....and here's my work:

This started with a brown cardstock that actually was in a xmas 6x6 stack.  I used my brand new Cricut Expression to cut a scalloped circle. Then two full circles(one off white, one patchwork) I cut those two circles in half and put one side each on the blue scalloped circle.

I had a bit of an accident with my automatic tape dispenser at this time.  I wish I had a picture of be sure...there will be a next time!

Some vintage lace from a RAK I won, a little bright pink bling border topped with a butterfly border.
Stickles is my very bestest friend--I used it to add dimension on the patchwork and on the swirls of the butterflies.

 Black embossed "love" stamp from the dollar bin

Chipboard heart with a thick coat of stickles(my bestie) with a diamond bling brad to hold it in place.

Show me some love......
