for Oz

This morning in the mail I got a beautiful Valentine card from Linda (also known as Oz) all the way from Oregon! Here it is - aren't I lucky? So delicate with the heart wreath and little tiny pink pearls on it.

She also included a set of clear heart stamps, and I told her I was inspired immediately to try something with them. This card is the result. I stamped 2 of the hearts 6 times each, cut them out, and assembled them into these heart flowers. Their centers are felt heart buttons. I used one of my favorite sentiments to make one stem, and stamped and cut out the other, and added a green gingham butterfly.

Thank you, my friend, for thinking of me!
