FSS Challenge anyone?

Monday is a great day to start your week with a challenge.  Fred She Said has a monthly challenge and gives lots of goodies away if you play!  The challenge blog is HERE.  The challenge is to make a card/project with at least 3 hearts on it.  I chose to do a picture frame with my favorite picture of my mom.  Here she is 16yo. Don't you love those colorized photos?  I was going to convert the photo to B&W but chose to keep it in its orginal state. 

So do you like these pansies?  Purple was mom's favorite color and she loved pansies & bagonias, spelling off there!!  Well I chose to used FSS pre-colored pansies.  Yes, you heard me.  A project with out stamping or coloring.  Here's the card in two colors.
If you want to see the images bigger just click on the photo.
I left the sentiments off because I wasn't sure how I want to use them.

So go check out the FSS challenge blog...HERE and join in.
I'm entering in two challenges for fun!
