Hi this card is amazing I have the little letter die and have never used it. Thanks for sharing :)

Those tiny letters are darling! I keep telling myself I don't need them, but after playing with them in last month's kit my resolve has weakened. :) Love the mix-and-match hearts in the centers, and the striped pink paper peeking through the kraft doily looks amazing!
