From the Heart - Pink Paislee and Helmar

 This is the second post today, so make sure you scroll down to see more creations and a small giveaway

Sometimes I find myself immediately drawn to a paper line. That feeling of "I gotta have it" takes over and when I create with it, it such makes me smile. One of those lines is the Bayberry Cottage Collection from Pink Paislee. These guys know how to make the perfect collections. The colors, the texture and the patterns, are just about enough to make me burst!!!

I created this card for the Raise the Bar Challenge this week which is to use pearls. One of my favorite little embellishments for sure. I just love the texture in this card. and the "key to the heart" on the chain turned out better than I'd hoped. Yummo!!!

I used the Card Patterns sketch for this one and I think it is one of my favorite sketches from Card Patterns in a while.
