Celebrate Connections; Heart2Heart Challenge

Hi there, I'm slowly getting my mojo back as things are settling down at the homefront. I have been commissioned to create quite a few sympathy cards this past year and unfortunately needed some of my own too.

I created this card using the Tender Thoughts stamp set from Close To My  Heart (CTMH). It was actually pretty simple. I cut an oval on regular printer paper and used it as a stencil to add some ink directly on the card front. I kept it there as I stamped the pine tree branches and pinecones to keep everything within the oval. I also added some tiny pearls (which are hard to see). 

I love the way it turned out. I even stamped a branch on the inside.

I'm entering this card on the Heart2Heart CTMH Challenge site. The current challenge is Celebrate Connections.

UPDATE:  I won the challenge for May and was selected as a Heart 2 Heart Darling!
