February is heart awareness month. I never paid attention to that before my surgery, but now things like that jump out at me. With Valentine's Day in February, I am doubly aware of hearts. Last February, I was the speaker during our counsel time at Awanas. It was fun to show photos of the heart, have a few kids listen to their hearts with a stethoscope, and to talk to them about the different ways we use the word heart. The word "heart" is found over 760 times in the Bible and usually it refers to the inner person including out mind, will emotions, etc. as in loving God with our whole heart. But the heart of God - how incredibly awesome to think about God's heart toward us. I love the quote by Michael Card on this card. I stamped a Verve heart on the sentiment because for me the sentiment (by Our Daily Bread Designs) speaks volumes of the heart of God.
The flowers are also ODBD, cut out, curled, and then I put brads into the centers. I used red, rose, and pink inks for the flowers but the shades don't show up well in the photo.
I also used two colors of green - moss, and artichoke for the swirl and leaves.
