I used the post card image from Diane's Daydream Designs set called SENDING YOU LOVE.. I had to use cool colors because the Ways to Use it challenge WT 463  for Splitcoast Stampers was to use warm colors if the temperature was above freezing and cool colors if below. Since it was -4 I had no choice.... COLD COLORS. I made the violets by dying typing paper. A year ago I bought store made stamens for flowers. I have only used them a couple of times because they are white. Today I painted them yellow so that they would be great for the centers of the violets. I did ink spray smash technique onto a page from an encyclopedia. I embossed and tea dyed the top heart.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
