Time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration! This week I have a Christmas card!
I used the Christmas Poinsettia and Holly Berry Sets from last year's Christmas collections. The images are stamped with VersaMark Ink, heat embossed with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel and colored with chalk inks. Here's a little close up of the flower.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!
I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #163 - Anything Goes.
