Happy Hump Day Everyone!  I hope everyone is doing well.  Our family continues to struggle with the flu and has been quite sick so I have not been doing any crafting this week.

  I do have one card to share with you that I made for last week's Inspiration challenge at Splitocast. I saw these Bleeding Hearts for the IC317 (Embroidery Everywhere) challenge and just had to use the  Our Daily Bread Designs Bleeding Hearts and Special Blend stamp sets.

The image is colored with copics, cut out and framed with the labels 4 die. The sentiment is cut out with the Fancy Tags (Spellbinders) die. The embossing folder is Provocraft Scrollwork. The ribbon is a gift from my dear daughter for Christmas.
