Hardest card in the world to make... when your heart is heavy it is so hard to think of something appropriate.
I wanted a simple design so I chose this rubber stamp flower by Magenta that is shaped like a heart.  The image is embossed with "Starry Night" Embossing Powder by Stamp-n-Stuff .  This black EP has wonderful gold flecks in it that you can see in the close-up below.  The angle is different and it catches the light differently.

I used Color Burst concentrated watercolor crystals to give the very vibrant colors you see here.
The image was then cut out & mounted on large foam dots to give it dimension.
The sentiment, from River City Rubberworks, and a final touch of shear ribbon were then added.  [Unfortunately, I did not straighten the ribbon before the pic was taken.]

Create wildly and color with abandon.   ~ginny
