sending my love...

Hello!!!  Wow!!! It has literally been like almost two weeks since I made a card!!  I know I have posted a few things, but that was because I managed to work a head and I got some things done before I got "sick like dog"!!   I'm finally feeling better except for the horrible cough that I still have, but I know that won't last forever!  Around the time I got sick my January My Monthly Hero kit arrived in my mailbox.   I unpacked the box and there all the contents sat until this afternoon when I was able to make this simple little card using the stamps and dies and the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  I stamped the wrapper for the bouquet on some older Valentine paper from Echo Park and then die cut it with the matching die. The floral part of the bouquet was stamped using the floral heart outline image from the set using a dark pink ink from the kit and then the matching solid floral heart image using a lighter pink ink (also from the kit).  I trimmed down some more of the papers from the same pad and adhered them to my card base.  Stamped the sentiment in black ink and then added my bouquet.  I finished things off with some of the dark red waxed twine that came in the kit.  I also added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard to the centers of all the flowers.
Hope you have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white; Patterned paper:  Echo Park; Stamps and dies:  Hero Arts; Inks:  Hero Arts and VersaFine; Red Waxed twine; Nuvo Glitter Drops
