These cute little critters are going for a walk.

as the card stock then die cut them out to add to the trees.

Thank You Card ~ Heart Flowers

I started with the floral and heart design paper for my 
background and framed it up with brown card stock.
Next I added the die cut clouds and dragonfly 
using matching design paper and brown card stock.
To finish my card up I layered two die cut sentiments.
