Anna’s roses

I wasn’t quite sure how this card would evolve, but I liked how it turned out! I knew that I wanted to put Anna’s roses inside of my Cuttlebug heart so that’s where it started. The die actually cuts 3 hearts at once so I made use of all three, and added different gel pen accents to each one. When searching for ribbon, I decided to add the pink polka-dotted one and tried a different way of placing it on the cardfront. It still seemed to have quite a bit of white space but I didn’t want to add any more paper, so I pierced holes around the outside and also outlining the middle heart. The roses and butterfly were painted with Twinkling H2O’s.
