Beautiful card - love this stencil. I need to use my stencils more. I had a patient when I did home health nursing that would crotchet me flowers - I still have a few "hoarded".

Wow! So many great things happening here! I do like the stencilled background and the distressed edges. My favourite has to be that super corrugated heart and crocheted flower. Lovely job! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.
