From the Heart - Flourishes January Sneak Peek, Day One



Welcome to the first day of Flourishes January sneaks! We have a whole lotta love for you this month, starting with this GORGEOUS set, From the Heart.


I decided to go all vintage-y with my card today. First of all I stamped the heart image on patterned paper and cut it out with a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Heart die and sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then I stamped the sentiment ribbon on Classic White card stock and colored it with the Lenten Rose Copic Collection, cut it out, stamped the sentiment, and popped it on on foam.


 Here's a close up of the ribbon. I just LOVE the shape of this ribbon--so fluid and realistic.


My card layout is simple--just some pretty paper and a doily behind the heart.

Now, be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you today...
