My card today features the newest "Layers of Life" Stamp Set, Paper Hearts.
This compilation of red rubber is perfect for mixed media lovers and scrapbookers, as well 
as card and tag makers!

I distressed the post card image even more by embossing with a swiss dot folder, 
distressing with brown ink and then spritzing lightly with walnut.
For the butterfly, I used three different Dew Drops and then blended the colors with a dauber.
The row of hearts were stamped and then cut out and applied with foam dots.  
Patterned papers & sticker by Authentique; Flowers by Petaloo

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
