Thinking of You

Hi everyone, I don't know about you but I like Wednesdays, (getting closer to that weekend ;o)  Today I'm sharing a card that I just loved making, had a lot of fun coloring and putting the 3D image together.  This card features a beautiful iris image and sentiment from Heartfelt Creations, for the layout I was inspired by sketch #9 from My Favorite Things.  If you have a few minutes to spare, please hop over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog and take a peek at all the beautiful creations the design team has put together.  Thanks for stoping by.

    Although I left a comment on this card on Splitcoast, I want to tell you here how awesome I think this card is. Your dimension is fabulous. It would make a beautiful wall hanging. This iris has quickly become one of my favorite stamps, and you've inspired me to try this type of layering.

  2. Angelica, your card is absolutely beautiful! I love the way you have coloured this.

  3. That is very pretty love the dimension you have. Gloria M
