Card Concept Challenge # 48

Hello again!
Welcome to the 

Don't those cookies look delicious!!!

I was inspired by the rows of hearts and their little flowers,
so here is my card.



It seems I have been in the mood lately for watercoloring!
I just LOVE the technique! I heat embossed the hearts with white embossing powder onto kraft card stock.  Then  I watercolored them with Distress inks.
The background panel was made by stamping a background stamp with white ink. Then I splattered some of the same distress inks that I used on the hearts on the background.





Now I hope you go visit my teammates for some fabulous inspiration!
