Hearts and Flowers

I found a few new challenges just recently - Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #41 from Mark's Finest Papers.  The challenge this week is to make something using self-made flowers.  This card also works for the Wild Orchid Challenge: "Love is...".  And I also want to enter this into the Hero Arts challenge this month.



I've used my current favorite flower stamp to make the flower, stamping each size and putting it together using 5 layers.  That was added to a die-cut scalloped heart, overstamped with a script, and then that was placed over a panel of my favorite BoBunny passion fruit .


A detail picture showing the layers on the flower:


Supplies: white cardstock, BoBunny passion fruit dot and avocado dot, Hero Arts CL291 3 Dotted Flowers, S4878 Old Letter Writing, CL163 Always Heart,  versamark ink and white embossing powder, spun sugar distress ink, versafine onyx black ink, CH173 white heart accent pearl
