Just Saying

Back from vacation and ready to make some cards! My card was inspired by a challenge and two new die sets.

On a yellow card base, a panel of black and white designer paper with small hearts was adhered. The inside of the card was decorated with a leaf sprig and stamped. On a panel of white cardstock, a background was created with some texture stamps using yellow and black inks. The red cardstock frame was die cut and adhered. The leaf spring was die cut from red and the outline from yellow cardstock. The leaf sprig was backed with foam for dimension and adhered. The sentiment was stamped. The white panel was backed with craft foam and
adhered to the card base.

I am submitting this card to two challenges:
