Roses and hearts

Roses and hearts, these traditional symbols of love are so versatile... I like to think of this card as a wedding card because the image reminds me of a close-up on a wedding bouquet. It could also be used as a Wedding anniversary or even a Valentines card.

The image was part of my scraps stash, I have cut it out of the packaging of Valentine-themed chocolates (yummy truffles if I remember rightly) .

The fruity colours and the roses give this card a summery feel, subdued by the overall colour scheme of pink and cream which adds some elegance.

Challenges: The Secret Crafter Saturday, Spoon full of Sugar, Scrap Online, Charisma Cardz, My Grafico, One Stop Craft, The Pink Elephant, Cupcake Craft, Everybody Art.
