To use a MS punch round the page my new ones and jules heart sentiment stamp. We could add anything else but had to include these 2 things.
Well as I had just got his stamp from Simon Says in Bevs giveaway on a Saturday thought it was the perfect image. The base paper is one i hve had for I think as long as i have been crafting and has small hearts on. The other is from the papermania capulse collection. Coloured the image and heart with my promarkers. 2 pearl hearts attached. I have also done the inside with the same papers and punch.
