Sending Hugs - Inspired by Stamping Challenge

Today is the Inspired by Stamping Challenge blog is ready for our next color challenge and it is gorgeous. I am so excited to be apart of the challenges and hope you will start participating, you could become the next guest designer. I made a sweet valentine card to send out to a special friend that needs to have a hug. I used Hero Arts XO stamp set since I am still waiting on my Inspired by Stamping stamps to arrive. Can't wait for them to arrive.
My paper My Minds Eye Blush paper pad and my flowers are hand made. Don't you love them, here is how simple they are to make.
1. Punch out a few circles, I used a scallop punch but you can use anything. If you don't have a punch just tear yourself a piece of paper to form a circle, they are really pretty done this way and gives your flowers a real vintage feel. Start on the outside edge, using your scissors cut to form a spiral.
2. Start on the outside edge and roll the spiral around the end of your petal roller, tweezers, etc.
3. Once you have your spiral completed roll, remove from your tool and glue to the bottom middle of the spiral. I use Glossy Accent because it is gummy and seems to grasp all of the spiral cuts.
 4. Here are your simple yet beautiful flowers.
 I stamped my image prior to placing my flowers to the front of my card, adding some fun artificial leaves and a few picks.
My hearts were all stamped from Hero Arts Four Hearts stamp set, though I used Hero Arts make sure to check out the heart stamp sets that Inspired by Stamping has in their store and try to do the challenge this week and there is a  Plus!!!!
