Thanks to the ladies at Stuck On U Sketches for a great sketch. The heart was a little difficult for me to get a good shape on... but I did finally manage to get it a little less lopsided! Yipee for that! I loved the flowers I cut... they reminded me of some we saw on our visit to Cabo. But the flowers on their own were getting lost on the busy patterns in the background papers. So, I thought I would place some wide brown ribbon behind the flowers. It helped because it gave it some texture and lifted the flowers off the page a bit. After sanding some of the flowers to "roughen" them up, I added some stickles. (Sometime I like to add a little bling to distressed elements!) After fussing over it the past few days, I decided to leave it alone and go ahead and post it. :)

Supplies used:
DCWV Papers - Mi Casa (Perfect for a vacation in Mexico!)

Wild Card Cartridge
