Stamp your HeART out

My sweet friend Virginia is having a little challenge, to find inspiration and then create a card based on it.  Virginia and I have been friends quite awhile now, first at the Hero Arts flickr group, and then as Hero Hostess sisters 2 summers ago.  Making friends through our shared love of cardmaking has been an unexpected joy I never expected.  This past February we finally got to meet!  So of course my inspiration is one of her cards, here, just one example of her happy, colorful cards.  This is my take on her card, using one of my all-time favorite sentiments: "I have you in my heart":























supplies: Hero Arts Poppy layering paper, white and brown card stock, Verve #Vs-0144 Bloom & Grow (flowers), Hero Arts E5388 Traditional Butterfly, CL377 Be Happy, CL272 All Occasion Messages, worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, scattered straw, broken china, and vintage photo distress inks, clear gemstones
