HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers MARCH blog hop


and WELCOME to the HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers MARCH blog hop! 

here is a little bit of inspiration from me - a card to CELEBRATE any occasion -

and here are some close ups:

i stamped the palace entry image from the palace entry precut set with watermark ink and heat embossed it with STAMPENDOUS "aged copper enamel" embossing powder. then i fussy cut the "iron gate" and die cut the brown cardstock gate with the HC garden romance die.

for my flowers i used light pink cardstock, brown ink, HC open vintage floret precut set, HC mini vintage floret precut set and HC vintage floret die. i embellished my blossoms with a brown pearl. 

the leafage i die cut with HC western broncos die and HC decorative chateau gate die.
