Kia Ora and Welcome Back
This is my second project for the Heartfelt Creations Young at Heart release today. The images are so fabulous and make stunning masculine cards – with a few flowers of course. I love the retro theme of this collection and this z-fold card reminds me of going for trips to the country with lots of forests and birds and old planes and cars.
