Bring on the Love and Hearts

The Splitcoast #367 sketch challenge was a good one today and I'm using that sketch to make my card which features a soon-to-be-released stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company  called 'You Are Cherished'.
The set has some wonderful images and sentiments with it. I decided to do the big heart with the lovely pansies inside. I colored with Copics and added some buttons from my Marianne Creatables-Tag and Buttons die cut. I really like it because you can make the buttons any color and design you choose. The punch is Martha Stewart Flower Patch edge.

Love pansies - they are a sign of spring as they are the first flowers I plant in the planter by my front door :) That border punch is adorable too. Lovely card.

Oh I love your little purple pansies Brenda, they're one of my favourite flowers and I have a big pot by my front door that I fill with them in Spring. Great job with your buttons too!
Hope your coldsore is soon on the mend, I've never had one but it sounds very painful.

What a GORGEOUS heart! It's filled with pansies (one of my fave flowers) and colored purple (my fave color) = I like it a lot!

I see the MFP logo features a fox now instead of the cat...that's different.
