Heartfelt


Happy Saturday. 
 This morning at Splitcoast, we are being inspired by the beautiful photography from the 
Crystal Gayle Studio on Etsy.  
Here is the photo that inspired my card:

I again used my embossing folder to create the background using green Distress inks.  
To see how go here:

When my background was dry, I inked the wheat stamp from Hero Arts with black Memento ink and stamped to the side.  Did the same with the sentiment from Rubbernecker.
Easy and quick card...love that sentiment.

Sending you a hug for a Happy Valentine's Day.
