Sent With Love

Hello everyone,

It is a lovely summer’s day in South Africa and there is so much to enjoy that  life is giving us. We had a heat wave again this week but according to the forecast today we can expect  some lovely rain to bring relief. The card I share today is for the Sugar Creek Hollow  Lots of Layers challenge. If you love to create cards in the shabby or vintage style come and play this week, we would love to see your creation. I used an image from Free Vintage Digital Images for my card as focus point. This pretty picture is actually the cover of a music score of Nat Johnson, Sun Kissed Roses – Waltzes. Such a beautiful lady and you can find this beautiful vintage ephemera here.  I have had the paper flower heart for years in my stash and at last it comes to good use. I also have red ones and maybe you will see these in the weeks to come!

I entered my card in the following challenges :

The sentiment, rose and another little pearl heart
