You're The best

Here we are Wednesday, it's time for some Heartfelt Creations, my card today has been designed with a gorgeous stamp image from Heartfelt Creations.  This image is from their Scenic Combo PreCut Set, it's the perfect image for any masculine looking card.  I kept the design very simple, the image was stamped and colored with weathered wood distress ink, I didn't want a lot of colors, just wanted to match the blue tones from the patterned paper.  Make sure to visit the HFC blog for lots of beautiful projects and another sneak peek at their new collection "Springtime Medley" releasing on Wednesday January 11, at 12 midnight EST.
