Just Because Card ~ Vintage Floral

I tried my hand at another shape card.
This time I combined the shape card challenge with one that
also asked us to use Christmas design paper in a non-Christmas way.
If you look real close you can see
a tiny Christmas tree in the design of the paper.
 I added a few little pearls to the flower centers for texture.
I may play a little with it after work.
I think it might need a little something.?.

 I'm back with the updated card.
I felt it just need a little something more.
As I was heading out the door this morning this idea popped in my head.
So I ran back and grabbed all the supplies and finished  it up on my break.

*Card base, front and design heart are all cut using the Classic Hearts die set from Spellbinders.
*Flowers from the Lots of Thought stamp set from Flourishes
*Design paper from the DCWV Christmas Matstack
*Pearls from Zva Creative.
*Tombo Irojiten pencils Crimson and Elm Green
*Memento Rich Cocoa stamp pad.
May your day always be filled with love.
