Today I'm sharing an encouraging, fun, and colorful card using the NEW PS Health dies set, as well as some sentiments from the NEW PS Inhale Exhale stamp set.
I dry embossed the heart image in a pattern design (four hearts in one row and five the next, repeating about 7 times down the watercolor paper) and then added rainbow watercolor inks to make the dry embossed images POP! *My goal was for the hearts to POP... as you can see in the full photo they didn't POP as much as I wanted them to! LOL! 

I thought these sentiments were perfect for a card to encourage a friend. And that bandaid die--- OH MY! So fun:)

Speaking of the bandaid die... I created this mini card by bending two bandaid die cuts into a heart shape image. #fun It's simple but with a big impact! *ALSO---- please note that the bandaids are actually light pink not nude in color! My photos are not showing great color or detail this time around! :( 
Be sure to stop by the PS blog for details about this blog hop and giveaway! And don't forget to leave some love along the hop:) 

That's it for me today- THANK YOU so much for stopping by! Be blessed ❤️
