A Heart Stencil Makes For a Sweet Homemade Card

This is another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to bring April 2020 to a close. The sketch immediately made me think of a stencil I created using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge. I've since used this stencil repeatedly, so it was worthwhile making it. The colors I used are Close To My Heart Peach and Smoothie. The Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 366 says to pick a color and use 3 shades of the color for their challenge.
