Heartfelt Thanks

Its Sunday and we have a new Pile It On Challenge for you, This weeks theme is Heartfelt Thanks
We have a fabulous sponsor Stampotique and we were lucky enough to choose a stamp to use I choose this lovely Picket Fence Stamp… I have to say I think the fence stamp is pretty cute with the mini hearts, SO thank you Stampotique and Pile It On! for allowing us this chance…
So what did I do? I decided to mask Henry with his heart image and then stamp the fence over so that when I removed the mask he was in front of the fence! I created a little scene adding sky spring clouds and grass, all in distress inks. Then cut out with a spellbinders die, I also punched a few mini Daisies. I have a little of the background paper left so I cut out the word Heart and Me to add on top of the doily.

The ticket sentiment was what I was talking about yesterday and the brown heart is a wooden one I have distressed, the papers are Echo park I think and I added a little distressed Doily, ribbon and twine. I really enjoyed making this card.. Note to myself ( do Masking more often).
