Heartfelt Wednesday

Today  I made a simple card. I used  one of  Heartfelt Creations beautiful paper collections. The paper lays out the design for you. You have the chocie of where your creativity will take you. Do you want a beautiful elegant card or do you want a beautiful elegant card with dimension?
 To add dimension just add a few flowers, a door way, a gate or anything else that you see in Heartfelt Creations Dies and Stamps. It is easy to put together during the busy holiday season, when time seems to escape us.

Do you have a secret behind those doors? It looks awfully dark in there! LOL LOVE LOVE LOVE how you used the white EP on the words - looks fabulous! And such a pretty garden gate. "Won't you come into my garden? I want my roses to meet you". Beautiful, Linda!

I have seen their papers and they are "ready to create with". You are right. I love how you textured the gate wood a woodgrain embossing folder. But I adore that sentiment. Great card, girlfriend.
