HEARTFELT CREATIONS - FEBRUARY 29, 2012

HAPPY LEAP DAY and its Wednesday too so it is time for another Heartfelt Creations project.  Today I am sharing an easel card I made using the city scene from HCPC 3444 - Scenic Vista PreCut Set.  I used some paper from 7 Gypsies and I coordinated my Copics to match the paper. The sentiment is from HCPC 3449 - Door to My Heart PreCut Set.  To finish the card I used a Lemon Spica pen to give the windows in the building a subtle glow.
