Because of You I am Me

This card was created for Bitten By the Bug "Mother's Day Flower Bouquet/Vase Challenge"  My choice of design paper was "Charlotte" using Sorbet cardstock for the die-cuts of the cross stitched hearts adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  

This is the Die Cut in Cricut Design Space using a flower from the "Celebrate With Flourish" Cartridge which  I modified to include two roses, still keeping all the flair, using slicing, attaching, welding and mirroring...I'm getting a better understanding of all the commands.  

The inside of the card, bottom corner, I used a stamp set to have the two roses opened and added a sentiment.  Left space available for a personal note.

There are so many things that stood out to me on this card but the first is the beautiful sentiment - the words are so meaningful. That die cut is gorgeous but you have taken it to a new level by adding dots and changing the flower colours. We may have to have a Face Time session so you can teach me some of these skills (particularly slicing - haven't been able to master that one yet!) Beautiful card!

Well done, Sue! Those heart dies are adorable. As you know, I love making an image my own through slicing, welding, etc. Lots of fun to be had with all the tools out there!
