Heartfelt Creations Cards

Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, my project today is this card full of color and pattern, it features this beautiful image and sentiment from the "Cardinal Posy Wreath" PreCut set.  
Added lots of dimension with flowers from the "Posy Patch Flowers" PreCut set.
The leaves are from the "Distressed Leaves" PreCut set, the center of the flowers are hand dyed dew drops.
This was my inspiration for the layout of my card, loved all the layering on it.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to check out my project. Make sure you visit the HFC blog for tons of inspiration.  Have a great and creative day.
