Heartfelt "Romantique Garden" Release

Hello Bloggers. We are debuting the latest release from Heartfelt Creations today.
This is "Romantique Garden" and our wonderful Kathy has written the most intriguing
description of this collection I just had to share it with you.

Love is in full bloom with the Romantique Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations.  A romantic symphony composed in subtle shades of pink, fuchsia, green, cream and charcoal harmonizes beautifully with picturesque images of dainty hummingbirds, devoted love birds, graceful swans and delicate bleeding heart bushes.  Ornate ironwork backgrounds are in perfect harmony with layered elements of vintage sheet music, lace, flowing handwriting, scrollwork, florals, stripes and flourishes.  Six hand drawn stamp sets capture the idyllic beauty of a peaceful garden where swans glide across the surface of a glassy lake, nesting lovebirds are wreathed in flowers, and hummingbirds sip nectar from blossom laden branches of exquisite beauty.  The coordinating die cuts feature elegant swirled stems, a graduated set of bleeding heart blossoms and a majestic pair of swimming swans.  Dreamy and idyllic, uplifting and inspiring, romantic and moving as a masterfully scored concerto, this enchanting collection is a celebration of love and life amidst the extraordinary beauty of nature.
I have two cards for you today featuring two completely different styles, for me anyway. Although, they are my favorites, Coloring and Glitter! You just can't get any better than that!
My first card is this sweet little garden scene that I colored with my Copic markers. The stamp is
HCPC Romantique Garden. I've also used a snippet of the gorgeous paper pad. It makes me dream of summer, ahhhhhhhh.......
My next card is sparkly, glittery, and bright. I was researching Bleeding Hearts and found this picture of blue ones on the web, so this is where my inspiration came from. Who knew they could be more stunning than they already are??? I've also chosen to color black swans to coordinate with the charcoal paper from the Romantique Garden Collection paper pad.
 HCPC 3638 Romantique Swans PreCut stamp set on my card. Along with the
HCD 728 Timeless Amour Dies on this card.
Here's another view so you cab see how the heart stands up, yet still folds flat for mailing.
You can find the complete instructions for both my cards on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, and take a look at my team mates work, using this spectacular new collection!
Thanks so much for joining me today & come back again!
Hugs, Maureen
