Elegant Happiness


Morning.  Today, I am posting a card I made using stamps from Paper Smooches for the LoveFest Challenges going on at Splitcoast.  This was a very easy, clean and simple card to create.  First I die cut a heart from Hero Arts onto a piece of scrap paper to use as my mask.  I stamped the flowers and leaves randomly inside the mask then sponged on additional colour to define the heart image.  I added the piercing and the sentiment then finished it all off by adding the black pearls.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
Simon Says- Wedding or Anniversary
The Card Concept- Floral Theme
Sister Act Card Challenge- ANYTHING GOES

Thanks so much for coming by to take a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Paper Smooches/ Distress ink/ piercing tool/ Memento bl/ heart die-Hero Arts/ twine
