Hello Friend!


 I created this card for the bi-weekly CR84FN Color Challenge

And I was also inspired by The Shabby Tea Room Challenge:

I really liked the way this card turned out. I just love the heart and the sentiment, which are from Verve Stamps.  The layout of this card is from one of my favorite sketches. It was one of the sketches designed by Amber Hight for the April Viva la Verve Sketch challenges.

I wrapped ribbon twice around the card. I attached the heart with dimensionals. I attached the pink flowers with pearl brads. I accented the flowers by adding the cream roses. I felt the flowers needed something else, so I then stamped and die cut some leaves with the Verve Elegant Leaves die and Bloom & Grow stamp set. The ink is SU Pear Pizazz.



Hope you have enjoyed my post!
