Spring Love

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome to my second post today for Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations. The new Black Friday 2022 dies are just amazing and my favourite die in this collections is the HCD3-7431 Slim Eyelet Rectangle Die. It is so very elegant and I really love the ‘Love’ sentiment die that goes with this set. This die works with the basic and eyelet slimline dies so well.

For my card I have tried to create a garden of flowers with the Classic Rose, Wild Aster and Lush Lilac dies cascading over the gorgeous dies.
