Heartfelt Creations_Delicate Asters

Today is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspiration!  Wow! Where does the time go?!  It seems like only yesterday that I was given the privilege to join this DT and now it's only a few more weeks till this 6 month term is over.  It's been an amazing experience!
For my card today, I used the Delicate Asters medallion.  It's a beautiful, elegant design that could be used so many different ways.  You will find the product list and instructions below.  I hope you will forgive this terrible photo, for some reason I had an awful time photographing this card.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations blog to see all the creative projects from an amazing DT!
Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed day!

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! This is absolutely gorgeous, Sarah. :)

  2. I love your punched background! Beautiful card!

  3. Stunning! The background is amazing... I thought it was a die cut! The colors are amazing and I love the butterflies you added. Your pic looks excellent to me! I find sometimes if the project has a lot of white that my little ol' digi camera has a hard time deciphering the white and other pale colors.

  4. Sarah, Sarah...this is sheer perfection! How beautiful is that aster amid all those love butterflies and die cut background. Lovely! Hugs!

  5. This card is absolutely breathtking! I love the coloring and the added butterflies that were added!
