Hearts, Love, Flowers

Good Sunday Afternoon My Dear Friends!  I hope that your weekend has been wonderful.

Today I have a card that feels like it took me FOREVER to finish.  I hemmed and hawed so much that I had to put it aside several times because it was driving me crazy.  I even missed the Sketch challenge that first got me going on this one.


Here we have Tilda Blowing Hearts and isn't she just too cute!?  I love those overalls.  She has been colored up with Copics to compliment the beautiful American Crafts paper that is hiding under there.  Also hiding in there are gorgeous Decorative Butterfly Corners by Spellbinders that you can see some of if you look close enough.  I did some stitching along the edge and lots of Distress inking on just about everything.


This is a birthday card for my eldest daughter, Jessica.  Her birthday isn't until June and so I hope I remember the card and where I put it when the time comes.  Unlikely, but maybe if I write it in my planner right this minute... LOL!

Thank You so much for stopping by and please leave a comment because, as you know, we all love that feedback and it keeps us striving to better ourselves.  Have a fantastic day and better tomorrows!

♥ Laura C.
