Delivering my heart to you

Happy Sunday, all! Hope you all are enjoying your day! =) I am sending you some love today with a card made using an adorable stamp from Whiff of Joy's March release.

Don't you just adore this image? He is one of my favorite gnomes from the new Snowwhite and the Gnomes collection. This one is called Delivering my heart to you. That little funky bird came with the stamp, too!

I colored and cut the image out using a Petite Ovals Small die then matted it with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Ovals Large die before machine stitching them together. The banner is cut using the Pennants die from WoJ. The hearts are left overs from die cutting except for the largest one. I used the Fancy Hearts Border Die on one of the patterned paper.

I created my own sentiment by combining the "sending you" from this Hero Arts set and the scrip "love" from the Falling For You set by Paper Smooches. The lovely patterned paper is from the Hopscotch collection by BasicGrey.

Here it is. Sending some love to all of you! =) Hope your day is fabulous!
