I did lots of different things to this card.
First I pulled out my Sew Easy and stitched the scallops with brown thread on both sides of the card.
I then ran it thru the Big shot with a Cuttlebug folder. I do not know the name of this folder, but it looks like wood grain. I cut the Circles and Lacey Circles in the designer paper with Spellbinders.

The heart is from  the Love Notes (Verve) stamp set,  which I hand cut after I stamped it. 
I then adhered it to some Tim Holtz Grungeboard to give it some depth. I inked ALL the edges with Early Espresso (SU) Ink. I then tied a heart charm to the heart.

The branch behind the flower is a Memory Box Die called Woodland Branch.
I punched some little flowers in the red and added brown rhinestones for the centers.
The sentiment (Hero Arts)was then stamped on a banner that I had cut with the die from
Paper Trey Ink called the Double-Ended Banner.

Thanks for stopping by! LOVE to read your comments!
