Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - You Are the Flower in my Garden Card

Hello Friends,
It's time for more inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!! For my card today, I used the beautiful paper from the Daphne Paper Collection to make the background and also the frame for the sentiment. The flowers were created with the Sun Kissed Fleur stamp and coordinating Sun Kissed Die.

2. Cut 12 squares measuring  1 ¾” x 1 ¾” using Daphne Paper Collection, distress edges, color with distress ink and adhere to card.
3. Die cut Decorative Window Scene using natural white cardstock, color edges with distress ink.

  5. Hi Marisa

    Well what can I say? Yet another stunning creation! The way you have put that together I was certain the back ground was in a series of tiny frames! It was only when I enlarged it I could see how you distressed the edges, it is very effective. I do love looking at what you create you are such a talented and creative lady and thanks for sharing your ideas with us all
