If you are going in this order, your next stop will be to  Emilia's blog to see her beautiful project.

 I love working with the Heartfelt Creations Flower stamps, dies and matching design papers.  It is almost time for the hydrangeas to start blooming, so I used  my favorite hydrangea stamp which is from the Heartfelt Creations "Hydrangea/Posy Branch PreCut Set" and the small flower from the "Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set" and matching Posy Patch Dies.  To create a variety of shades, some of the flowers were stamps on light purple card stock and some on darker purple card stock.  I then colored over the flowers with a blue Faber-Castell PITT big brush pen to blend the colors together.  Each of the little posy patch flowers were then shaped and glued over the stamped Hydrangea.

For my background I used a piece of design paper from the Heartfelt Creations "Countryside Evening" collection.  I love how we can use some of the older stamp sets and dies with things from the newest collections.  For the sentiment, I used one of the stamps from the "Heartfelt Expressions PreCut" set.  There were additional words on this stamp I didn't want to use, so I just inked up the "Thank You".  I love the font on the sentiments in this set.  

The flower was attached with dimensional dots.  I stamped the hydrangea twice and cut off the leaves on the second stamped image to add to this flower to add even more dimension.  In the lower left corner I added the pretty corner die cut from the new Heartfelt Creations "Ornate Gateway" dies.  then added a silk bow to finish the card. 

Be sure to leave a comment below then continue on to the other designer's blogs, leaving a comment on each, so you have a chance to win the $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations.
