Heartfelt Creations Inspiration

Today I have for you a beautiful Valentine or anytime card. The detail in Heartfelt Creations ,  Passage to my Heart PreCut Set is remarkable. I easily colored the rose, leaves and vines before outlining them with glitter. I framed my heart with the incredible lace heart die from Timeless Amour Die. The matching Timeless Amour Paper pack makes coordinating your project seamless.

If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Linda, I recognized your card on the HC blog before finding your name. Your style is GORGEOUS! These are arts of work. Can't you just see this card framed? Love the glittery detail inside the heart, and all the luscious colors and layers. Beautiful! And pinned, of course.
