From the Heart

Hi all, hope you had a fabulous weekend. Mine was great, we got lots of things accomplished, like starting to work on our planned yard sale. Plus today it was raining so we spent the day indoors (of course the kids had to build a sand castle in between the showers!)

I made today's card for the Create4fun Challenge. This is my first time playing along, because I just found this challenge. I love the sketch they provided.I received this cute Sarah Kay image from a image swap, I am not sure what the name is, but I believe it is called "Rose Garden". Papers are from SU and DCWV. I embellished with lace ribbon, prima flowers, MS punched leaves and pearls, I also used my sewing machine and did some sponging around the edges to soften it a little bit.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, hope you liked the card. The full recipe can be read below.

Recipe:
Stamps: Sarah Kay (Rose Garden?), stampin up
Ink: black, soft sky for sponging, copics for coloring
Paper: soft suede, white, dcwv sweet stack
Accessories and Tools: prima flowers, pearls, lace ribbon, martha stewart branch punch, scallop edge punch, word window punch, stickles

This is so pretty, I love the colors of pink that you used with that brown. I also like the way you used that branch punch around the flowers.
