Make It Monday #272 - Masked Heart Wreaths

Hello friends.  Super fun technique for this weeks Make It Monday challenge by Melissa Phillips!  I always get excited when I see her name come up because I know it's going to be something flowery and beautiful, and it definitely was!  I used the same Limitless Layers: Stitched Hearts die to create my mask, and also the same Inspired: Love die for my center, but then went my own way and came up with this:


I used the Basic Bookmark #3 die to stamp my masked heart on, and used flowers, leaves, hearts, and dots from the following sets:  Birds & Blooms, Choose Joy, & Polka Dot Basics.  My sentiment is from the Book Club stamp set.  I used a bit of Hawaiian Shores striped DSP and the Hearts Border Die in Pure Poppy for the side treatment of my card.  Not real happy with the color my seam binding ribbon came out...used my Hawaiian Shores re-inker to die it and it seems more on the green side than blue-green, but I like the way the rest of the card came out, so I'm not going to complain too much!  :0) 

You can check out Melissa's lovely cards and video, and all the beautiful cards in the gallery right HERE and then play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do!!  :0)
