HEARTFELT CREATIONS ALUMNI DESIGN TEAM - MAY BLOG HOP

Today is the last Tuesday of the month and that means it is time for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Monthly Blog Hop.   I am excited to share with you  a card I created using the covered bridge image from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3526 - Natural Beauty PreCut Set that I colored with Copics.  I created a gatefold card and used Heartfelt Creations HCDP1 231 - Posy Patch Paper Collection.

I added  Art Glitter Elements in Spinich to the tree and  Robin's Nest Dewdrops in Mocha Trail for embellishments.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3524 - Butterfly and Bunny PreCut Set.





The designers participating this month are:

Candy Slabaugh  (that's me!)
