H2H - Oh My Heart

Welcome to H2H's weekly challenge! 

This week, the theme is "Oh My Heart". There is a current paper pack by that name and that can certainly be used but that is just one option for this challenge. There are other ways to interpret this theme. 

I chose to use Close To My Heart's valentine paper pack from last year (Heart Happy). I created a heart insert and cut out the pieces on my Cricut machine. I developed a shaker that is embedded in the card front - the way I prefer to make them. The background of the heart was stamped with the second part of the sentiment as the word "Sending" is adhered to the front of the acetate. I added a bow made from Sapphire Crochet Thread and Silver Embellishing Thread and added two strips across the top and bottom. The heart was brushed with the Red Shimmer Brush as well. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret this week's theme. 
You have until the end of February to link up your project. 
We can’t wait to see what you create!
