Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Hello friends. This card reminds me of a flower garden quilt I made many years ago. Each piece was stitched together by hand. It was quite the project and I was so glad when it was finished! But oh, it was so pretty!

You will find these hexagons (both the stamp and die set) in the Buttons and Blooms collection at Heartfelt Creations. Below you will find all the details to make this card.
