Heartfelt Holly

Hello and Welcome to another Heartfelt Inspiration Wednesday!

Today it is all about the holly, and Heartfelt Creations' new holly images are gorgeous!

 I colored my holly swirls with Copics and die cut them with the coordinating dies. The sentiment is embossed in black.  See complete instructions below.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!  For more amazing inspiration from the Design Team, please check out the Heartfelt Creations blog.  

Have a blessed week!
