Thoughtful blooms with matching punch

I really like this colour combo this is a very simple card although it does look complicated it was a couple of very small flower stamps I also used the be mine stitched framelits to cut a scalloped heart shape out. I also used the stamparatus  placed the stamps in the corner then flipped my card around to stamp in the other corner the sentiment was from the stamp set colourful seasons I love this sentiment .

I hope you have enjoyed my cards if you would like a notification when I post a blog usually twice a week the click on the follow me link.

Young at heart

These two golden oldies remind me of Wendy my bestie we have had some fun over the years and been friends since we were 5 in the infant school we are now in our 60s .

I used the Heirloom frames and die bundle to complement the old dears great set of stamps which Im sure to get lots of use of I stamped and coloured the ladies using blenders onto a piece of card then using the frame dies cut an oval and embossed with the frame embossing folder stuck the picture to the back of the embossed oval and mounted on the front of the card.
