simply create too 53 (valentine's day or hearts)

It's time for another round of fun at Simply Create Too where our Challenge #53 theme is "Valentine's Day or Hearts".  I don't have need for tons of valentines, so I went with the heart here.  And some crochet thread art.

Used the Kesi Art "Coeur Evide" die (my graphic-loving heart loves this heart) to cut the shape from scrap.  I used the scrap as a pattern and punched holes into the card at all intersections then stitched.  My sentiment is an oldie but goodie from Hero Arts. A super glittery brown "U" and some coolio PP from Studio Calico's Print Shop - it's the best shade of greige - and voila!

Working on something heart-y?  Doesn't have to be a card. Join us and Simply Create Too!

Supplies for you touch my heart:
Paper:  cardbase Bringmann, PP Studio Calico, black scrap
Stamps: sentiment Hero Arts
Ink : Versamark
Tools: die Kesi Art
Other: chipboard letter, white embossing powder, crochet thread, washi
