French Foliage & Hearts

Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits gives you a textured heart to use as a feature on your cards if you want a little more than the small heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits 125599.  This card was inspired from a card I made a few posts ago (details can be viewed HERE) in Wedding & Cards of Love...which also implements French Foliage on the diagonal of the background of the card and Embellished Events for the greeting...

Wisteria Wonder, Black and Whisper White are the colours used on this card.
This card, in Marina Mist, Whisper White and Crumb Cake, utilises the Framed Tulips EF 121809 and Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits 117332 as the features. I roughly sponged the edges of the Whisper White background card with Marina Mist and Crumb Cake ink. 
The ribbon is from the new seasons Catalogue 2013 (129292); gorgeous striped Organdy Ribbon.
I trailed the French Foliage splatter in Crumb Cake, diagonally but randomly, on the background, with little highlights of Marina Mist hearts from the stamp set Create a Cupcake (W123553 / C121982).
A close up of the embossing and sponging...
The greeting used is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments (W119185 / C120024), stamped in Crumb Cake on Whisper White and punched out using the Word Window Punch.  This is mounted on Marina Mist, punched out using the Modern Label Punch.  The greeting is then raised using SU Dimensionals.
Both the greeting and scallop heart are raised using SU Dimensionals

Time to step away from the blues and go the Raspberry Ripple and Melon Mambo on Whisper White.  Sponge the edges and this time I spritzed the diagonal instead of using the French Foliage...
I like the French Foliage a lot more, what do you think?
Hearts, hearts, hearts...
I hope you enjoyed today's post - I would love to read your comments, so please leave a comment and let me know if you love French Foliage as much as I do.
