Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Good morning everyone, today I have a card I designed featuring this beautiful cardinal image and sentiment from Heartfelt Creations.  The image is from the "Spring Birdies and Roses" PreCut Set, and the sentiment belongs to the "Sympathy Sentiment" PreCut Set.  I had a lot of fun playing with the different patterned papers, can you tell I like paper ;O)
Here is a closeup of the stamped image, you can see how I cut the whole image apart and they adhere with pop dots to get the dimension.
I added some Stickles to the rose and the scalloped edge.
For the layout of the card I used this sketch from Mojo Monday, I can't help my self when it comes to lots of layers.  Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by and hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, oh! almost forgot, make sure to stop by the HFC Blog and take a peek at all the beautiful projects designed by my DT sisters.
