Home is Where the Heart Is

Welcome back for Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations and today I have two projects for you.

I love the subtle colours of the Calla Lily Paper collection and the gorgeous swans and for my first project I have combined the two to create a card that is perfect for a wedding card.  I have used the lovely heart dies, the Sweetheart Borders die and the swans themselves to create a heart motif that any bride and groom would love in a wedding card.  Don’t you just love the gorgeous cottage in this paper?
