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.
