Have a couple of cards today made with the beautiful images from Heartfelt Creations. I think this is my first circular card, I saw the sketch on Mojo Monday's blog and I just knew I had to use it with this beautiful image of the "Church In The Wildwood", the color combination is from a color challenge over at Color Combos Galore, it took me some time to get it all put together but in the end I was very pleased with the final results. Don't forget to visit the Heartfelt Creations blog for tons of inspiration and another sneak peek at their brand new "Window Scene" collection debuting on Thursday November 25th @ 12 midnight.
For this card, I decided to keep my color scheme to just blue and white, used Bazzill bling cardstock for the blue background and the diecut snowflakes, love the shimmer on this cardstock, I thought it would go perfectly on this card.
