I had so much fun creating this card. I combined several of Bev's sets with the wonderful flower heart being the focal image. The colours are from this week's Colour Q - cQc#323 challenge. I started by making a base from Crumb Cake card and stamping the smaller flower from Beautiful Blooms in Versamark to create a tone-on-tone look. In the small gaps I stamps one of the sentiments from Always and Forever. I cut a panel of white card and stamped this pretty lattice border on a diagonal and coloured it with Copic markers. I stamped a birthday sentiment above the lattice and then carefully cut along the border. I stmaped the flower heart in bright pink - I used my MISTI so was able to stamp the image twice to give really good definition to the image. I then carefully cut it out and adhered it to the card with dimensional tape. Prior to adding the heart to the card I used my clear Wink of Stella brush to add some sparkle to the coloured parts of the lattice and also to the white flower in the heart, sadly you can't see it in the photo! On the inside I cut another white panel and added another flower along with a simple greeting.
