Blog Hop Day 3 - You Got My Heart

Welcome to the “Crafty Sentiments Designs’ blog hop”!

Also details of all the Days hops if you have missed any.
Here is the project I created for this hop:

I have gone with a White on white theme for this card and just coloured the stamps with my Promarkers to make it pop. I have used Spellbinders, Memory box, Marrianne and Crafty Sentiment Dies. Have cut a memory box die then glued onto some card and cut with my hearts by Marriane. Then used some shimmer chalks to lightly tint the flowers. I have embossed the base layer with Tied Twine Embossing folder. Also added a Paper Doily, white satin ribbon and some pearls to finish. I hope that the layers on white card ad Pearlized white card comes across so hard to get a good picture of white on white cards in the darker month.
