Good Morning friends, i have an altered canvas to share with you using the awesome Birds and Blooms collection from Heartfelt Creations.
One of my most favorite things about this collection is the bloom die, the blooms are small, yet the stamp image has such incredible detail that you can add so many of these to any project.
