Hi there Heartfelt Creations fans, hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. My card today features some of the new stamps and dies from the "Chateau Gate" collection. For the background I embossed a piece of patterned paper and slightly inked the edges and embossed areas with walnut stain distress ink. I used the decorative window die to make the decorative corners and attached a black brad as a final touch.
