Crazy Quilt and Blue Flourishes Valentines

More Valentines for the current Hero challenge. For this first one, I wanted to make a heart to look like a crazy quilt. I used a template that Shari shared with us here. This size will fit into an A2 envelope.

Supplies: CG169 Heart Flourish, S5101 Raindrop Background, S5264 Antique Flower Background, K5185 Wallpaper Flowers, pink and white cardstock, Memories Soft Blossom Shadow ink, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, Stampology Black ink, Blush Pink Prismacolor pencil, Cuttlebug embossing folder, lace, ribbon, stitching, Maya Road flower, Hero Arts heart template

For this one, I couldn't wait to see how the Heart Flourish cling stamp would look on a clear card, so that's where this one started. Then I added elements in blue.

Supplies: CG169 Heart Flourish, CL301 Hugs N Hearts, AR109 Heartfelt Wishes (an Archivers/Hero set), CH173 Hearts Accent Pearls, Hampton Art letter stamps, white cardstock, blue patterned paper, Adirondack Stonewashed ink, acetate card, Fiskars Paper Edger Scissors

See my Flickr photostream for details on either card.
