Hearts speak

This card is a bit outside my normal comfort zone, but I love the way it turned out. This is based on yet another sketch in Go To Sketches, this one on page 83. I was digging though a bunch of patterned paper and came across this great argyle paper, which was exactly what the sketch seemed to want. All of the paper is from the All Fall collection by Fancy Pants. I cut the flowers with the Beautiful Blooms II #1 dies, then stacked them up and put it all together with a rustic wood button tied with rustic jute button twine. The sentiment is from the Friendly Words jumbo wheel from Stampin' Up! Mine is cut up into separate sentiments and mounted on EZ Mount.

Details: stamps - Friendly Words jumbo Wheel (Stampin' Up!); paper - All Fall collection (Fancy Pants); ink - dark chocolate; accessories - dark chocolate satin ribbon, Beautiful Blooms II #1 dies, rustic wood buttons, rustic jute button twine

This is just beautiful...great use of color! I love how the flower coordinates with, but isn't identical to the argyle paper. Lovely card!! Well done!
