I bought a new toy, a floral heart die from Impression Obsession. This just happens to fit in with their current challenge- "blooming where they're planted". This is my first time trying one of their challenges and I hope I got it right.

The idea of using die cuts as a stencil occurred to me when planning my card. I did that by cutting the floral hearts from Reynolds Freezer Wrap which is plain paper on one side and plastic on the other. Once cut I ironed the die cuts onto the white cardstock and sponged on Distress inks. The wrap needs to be rewarmed with the iron in order to peal it back off. The focal heart is one of the stencils adhered to a cut green heart and embellished with punched hearts, Viva Pearl Pen, and sequins. The printed ribbon tied it all together.
