I have a bonus card to share with you today featuring the gorgeous Hollyhock Garden from Heartfelt Creations. I love the beautiful papers in this collection and find it hard to cover them up with embellishments. So I have made mini slimline card with a see through window to feature the gorgeous floral papers.
