SSSC164 - I Have You in My Heart

Hello and welcome!  It's time for another fun Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Today I have a card that I created for a special friend of mine who's going through a difficult time. 
I used several different stamps on this card to give it a bit of an artsy kind of look.  Most of the stamps are from Hero Arts including the Solid Heart Background stamp, Bird with branch and the All Occasions Messages.  I'm in love with this new "Fabulous" My Mind's Eye designer paper pack that I used as well, it has such pretty patterns and designs you can cut up for card making or scrapbooking.
After creating my card I didn't have an envelope large enough to fit so I used a flat paper bag I had and decorated it to coordinate with the card.  I used a strip of designer paper, another Hero Arts sentiment and Papertrey Ink dies to complete the envelope.

For the inside top of the card I used a PTI flower die with a Verve sentiment in the center and on the bottom portion of the card I stamped a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions stamp set Friendship Blooms (you can click on any of the pictures for a closer view).

Supplies: Solid Heart Background, Bird with Branch, All Occasions Messages and flower gems - Hero Arts, Friendship Blooms & Flower die - Taylor Expressions, Circular Sayings - Verve, Circle punch, Spiral punch, Butterfly Sizzlet - SU, Flower die, Heart Border die, Doily Details die, Banner die, Button - PTI, Bakers Twine, Leaf pins, Paper bag, Copic markers, Foam tape.  Colors: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pink Passion.
