I am LOVING the new paper lines from Heartfelt Creations! Of course, I've always loved their stamps but adding coordinating paper is a total chocolate cherry on top! I had tons of fun stamping my wee heart out for this card.

The little white blossoms are the smallest stamp from Posy Patch. I used a Distress Ink to stamp and then die cut. I wanted them to echo my white blossoms in the main image. The little bit of green pine poking out is from Organic Fillers and coordinating die.

These three blooms are all from the Daisy Patch Flowers and coordinating dies. I stamped all the flowers with Archival black ink on some yellow patterned paper from the coordinating paper pack. They looked a little bland after assembly, so I painted on some shimmer with 
Yasutomo Pearlescent paint.

Went a little nuts with all the filler leaves.

And the main image. This is from Ornamental Raspberries. There is an additional bunch of raspberries in this set that can be stamped and layered on the more detailed image, which I did. The extra raspberries stamp also has a coordinating die. I used foam adhesive for dimension.

I stamped the images with Archival black ink onto Kraft cardstock
and colored with Prismacolor pencils.

The sentiment is from Add-on Sentiments from the Garden Romance Collection. I punched it out with a 1 inch circle punch and accented with distress ink and Stickles.
