MOD SQUAD - Hearts and Flowers

Dear Ones~

I am the host this week over at the Mod Squad Challenge, and I have chosen Hearts and Flowers as the theme. I am asking you to use both HEARTS and FLOWERS somewhere on your card.

Here is my card:
I have seen lots of You Tube videos lately using this masking technique. I cut a heart out of thin copy paper, used it as a mask, and then stamped the flower and leaf images around it to form a wreath of sorts. Then I used another heart to hold the greeting and popped it up for dimension. It is heat embossed around the edge with Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder, as is the greeting itself. I used GKD Triple Play Frame, and GKD Fabulous Frame Fillers for the flowers and leaves, and the greeting is from the GKD Stately Flowers 6 Stamp Set. The patterned paper is from the GKD Floral Essentials patterned paper stack.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to head on over to The Mod Squad Challenge and play along. I can't wait to see your wonderful creations, and I adore your comments.
