Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Good morning and welcome to my Wednesday post with Heartfelt Creations.  Hope everyone is having a great week so far, I'm trying to play catch-up here, we took a little vacation this past weekend, so between all the things I have to do and trying to keep Maria busy now that she is on her summer brake, it's been crazy!!  Today I have a colorful card I created using some of the stamps and coordinating dies from the new "Bella Rose" collection, also used the "Posy Patch" dies to create the rose.
I stamped the image twice and colored with Prismacolor pencils, I cut the second image with scissors and adhered with pop dots, I covered the vase with sepia liquid embossing and added some stickles to the roses.
I created the rose with some dies from the "Posy Patch" die set, I worked the petals similar to the technique Tim Holtz uses for his roses, I just had to do it a bit different because of the shape of the flowers.

Hope you have enjoyed my card today, thank you for visiting my blog and make sure to stop by the HFC blog so you can see all the beautiful projects the rest of the design team has created.  Have a wonderful day.
