Joanna Sheen's RHS 'Roses' Stamp Set

Morning folks!
Here's one of my favourites that I made for the RHS collection launch. I made a pocket/pouch (covered with pretty K&Co papers) and cut out a heart aperture which I backed with vellum. I made the pink border with my Martha Stewart border punch and added some velvet ric rac. I just love adding lot of different textures to my projects. I attached the tiny little heart shaped metal charm with some sheer ribbon.
I stamped and embossed the images. These were water coloured using distress inks. I then carefully cut them out with a craft knife.
For the card I used the same MS punch, some pink ribbon, brads and a large eyelet so that the card may be easily removed from the pocket. I cut the frame using my trusty circle and scalloped circle Nestability dies. I further embellished the inside of the card and included the beautiful 'Love to You' sentiment that came with the 'Roses' Hothouse flowers stamp set, but I forgot to take a picture of it before sending the card to Joanna.

I love how you can still see the muted image of the roses through the vellum heart. A truly romantic card that would suit many occasions.
Enjoy your Sunday.
Ciao for now!
