Now, sorry I did say I would post this card on Saturday but I just had to get my Waltzingmouse project up for the Birthday girl!!!!  Thanks for all the lovely comments you left me I'm glad you liked the little 'Tea Baggie" it was such a fun little project to put together.  So here we are Sunday ...........

This is  my last Heartfelt Creations card for this week and it's gone into my favourites .......I think it's the colour Pink and Brown with those sweet popped up petals yum!  All the pink gems sparkle IRL which adds so much to this card. Do you like the script dsp? I love it.  OK enough chat here are the details:
