It's All About the Hearts

Using a coordinating color in the negative space behind a cut out 
image gives dimension and texture to your project. Heart 2 Heart
 is having a negative space challenge challenge this month. 
Come join in the fun!
I used the sketch below from Atlantic Hearts to make the circle
my negative space to accent the sentiment and flowers.
Use this sketch to create your project to share at Atlantic Hearts.
PS. It only seemed appropriate to use the Happy Heart stamp set.

friends who visit my blog this card is for you! I appreciate
your visits and all your kind comments.
Heart 2 Heart is celebrating National Friendship day with a fun

the colors from Color My Heart: Sapphire, Lemon, Emerald and Poppy. 
The brick background is made with a stencil cut from Artbooking and 
sponged with Poppy ink. The bird is stamped with Charcoal ink and second 
generation Sapphire using the Thoughtful Bird stamp set with the three

with Emerald ink. Lemon flowers give the card it's final accent . 
And as the card says "So thankful for your friendship."
