365 Cards - Day 241 - Scavenger Hunt

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards!! Today Pam is sending us on a scavenger hunt around to find things to use on a card that you normally wouldn't. Looking around my house I found these carpet hearts that came from my puppy's food and water bowl mat (see pic below). When I bought the mat,, the hearts weren't quite punched out all the way so I grabbed'em to use on this card!
I got to use the super cute Cocoa in  a box image from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps which I thought went really well with the fuzzy hearts! Here's a picture of the inside that finishes the sentiment on the front...
Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - die cutting/punches: not only where the hearts originally die cut from the carpet (guess I can't claim credit for that though), the picture corners and edge on the inside were cut with punches
2. allsorts challenge blog - spot and stripes: the stripes are obvious, but it may be harder to see that the green paper is actually dotted and I added glitter to those too!
3. Bee Crafty - Christmas + digi image
4. clean&simple - sketch
5. Crafty Cardmakers - do something with a digital image other than print and color: I paper pieced the image and popped up the mouse's face
6. Crafty Creations Challenges - red, brown, and green
7. Creative Card Crew - punches: see above
8. Delightful challenges - It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas
9. Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club  - the one I love
10. digital tuesday challenge - non-crafting item + digi: see above
11. Mami Doodles: Digital Stamps  - thanksgiving and Christmas cards
12. One Stitch At A Time Challenge - any celebration
13. Other Lovelies – Thoughtful Thursdays - letter H: Hearts
14. pile it on - holiday card using red/white/green + something soft: think my pieces of carpet are pretty soft!
15. Simon Says Challenge - punch'em: see above
16. The Crafty Pad - Christmas theme
Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see what you find around the house to use on your card!

I love your scavenger ways, very clever.

Your card is just so sweet. When I first read about the doggy food I thought for a second you had added dog biscuits to your card. LOL

Anyhow thanks for joining in the fun at Crafty Cardmakers with your lovely card.
