For a Very Special Person

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a pretty card using the wonderful color palette Heather chose for the current Winnie & Walter Color Combo Challenge.

I adore these pine and pink tones together!!! I was thinking about making a Christmas card with them, but I went Valentine-ish, instead.....using some of my newly acquired W&W products! FUN!!

I grabbed a couple sheets of smooshed paper I had on hand in the appropriate colors. I echoed the scalloped edge of the heart in the scalloped rectangles...and stamped and die cut a bouquet of flowers and leaves to put inside the heart. A few butterflies help me remember that spring will be here before I know it. I even got brave and put a few ink splatters on!! 

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals stamp set
Winnie & Walter - Sentimental: Gift stamp set
Winnie & Walter - True Dotty Heart Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Tsukineko - Memento Ink in London Fog
Distress Ink in Black Soot, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar
Versamark Ink
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular
Mixed Media Paper and Watercolor paper backgrounds I had on hand that had been smooshed with various leftover inks.

I'm not very experienced making bouquets for my cards, but I really like how this turned out. Hope you like it, too!! Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Want to leave your with an inspiration from the Bible in Isaiah 55:6-7 which says, "Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon." Have a wonderful week.
