Good morning and welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, today I want to share with you a card I made using one of the gorgeous new stamps that were released last week, this image is part of their "Springtime Cardinal" Collection. The name of this set is "Cheery Cardinal" and it includes both the cardinal image and the sentiment used on this card.
I wanted to make the cardinal and cherries pop so I kept the rest of the colors in shades of green and white.
