Thinking Of You/Thank You Card Using Heartfelt Creations Oakberry Lane Blossoms

Hello friends!  I heard that Colorado had snow already this month.  Isn't that crazy?  We are having 80's in Southern CA; so not quite fall yet.  I hope your weather is nice where you are.  

I have been playing and experimenting; trying to learn how to create flowers with Heartfelt Creations products.  I have created flowers in the past with other dies; but mine never looked like the ones I saw other people creating.  A friend of mine told me to try the ones from Heartfelt creations; so I did.  What a big difference it made in my flowers.  Plus, they are fun to work with.  I just need more time to create with them.  

I was tired of buying flowers and nothing ever matched the colors I needed.  I have spent a lot of time watching Heartfelt Creation videos; and will probably spend a lot more time watching them in the future.  My husband actually said they looked real to him.  Wow!  That is a compliment coming from a man.  LOL!

This is my first card that I have created where the focus is on the flowers and not a digital image or some other main attraction.  LOL!  I was kind of lost trying to figure out how to do it; but I think it turned out pretty nice.  I hope it will inspire you to create your own flowers.  

If you notice, the background paper matched perfectly with my lattice border die I found in my collection.  I thought that was really a nice touch; but completely by accident.  Be sure to check out the 3 CTMH specials for the month.  We have a new Idea book that started September 1st with a lot of fabulous new products.
