Seasonal Expression 2 Inspired Stamp of the Month Card

Inspiration Artwork from page 76 of the current Seasonal Expression 2 Idea Book from Close To My Heart. 

My version started with the same Stamp of the Month heart image stamped in Peacock Ink on White Daisy. It is double matted with Charcoal and a Picture My Life card from the Documented paper pack.
Corner rounded the edges of the card and the Picture My Life card, added twine, which was from my stash (these were the twine pieces from last years Cut Above Tags that I used on cards instead of tags), and finished withe a piece of silver shimmer trim.

Thank you for stopping by, I so appreciate any comments you may have.

It started with a Peacock cardstock base page which mats a White Daisy cardstock piece cut to 11 3/4" x 11 3/4". The sunburst is an Artbooking Cricut collection image sized to 10" x 9". Scraps from the Documented paper collection, featured this month, were used in the sunburst cutouts. The words along the left edge of the photo are from the zip strip (this is the 1/2" x 12" piece along the top of our paper where on side shares the information and the other is a pattern you can use on your projects, we want you to use it all!!).
