 Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!

I have discovered a fondness for working with vintage style photos and acquired this beauty recently. She is gorgeous, the photo is gorgeous and I loved using it on my Heartfelt Creations page this week.

I used the beautiful Limited Edition Aztec Gold Sunflowers Precut Set for my flowers, the Large Elegant Word Background Precut Set for the background and the Layered Elegant Swirl  Die. Many of the Limited Edition Stamps are being retired and will not be available come the first of the year. You won't want to miss them so be sure to pick up the ones you have been eyeing.
The Layered Elegant Swirl Die is just beautiful. I love using it on my layouts to frame photos.

For these flowers I used pattern paper and distress ink. I like to use pattern paper for my flowers. It gives the flowers color and personality. Then I use the distress ink applicator and go over the petals for more detail.

Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creations Blog today to see what the other designers have done with the stamps. There is so much inspiration there you won't want to miss it!
