CTD #275- best wishes

Here we go again with another fabulous color combo. This week the colors are brought to us by Wanda. And they are fun!




I played a little with new to me WPlus9 set/s and die... More Fresh Cuts die, More Fresh Cuts and Fresh Cut Wreaths stamps. The background was embossed with swiss dots but, used the debossed side. Added an extra flower at the bottom of the heart but, thinking I should have let it be... ever do that?

Great use of the colours. Love the flowered paper/images you used for the heart and how you double layered the hearts.

I love how you matched the background to the ink color on the flowers - everything is tied together beautifully - like it was meant to be.
