Love Me Do

Good evening to you all and thanks for popping by.

Well my inspiration still keeps playing hide and seek but I have managed to put together a wedding heart, and as it's my first attempt I was quite pleased with the result.

I used Xcut nesting dies to cut out the heart shapes which I sandwiched together with a frilly lace edging and the image is a LOTV topper. The white roses are from the Hobby House, the pink flowers from Hobbycraft and tucked behind are Memory Box 'elegant scrollwork' and 'chloe stem' dies with a couple of little flower dies from Marianne Creatables LR0154 tag set. I added Stickles to the image and flowers and it looks super when the light catches it - unfortunately the sun had disappeared by the time I came to take the photos.

On the reverse I added a pink ribbon bow with a pearl brad. The smaller heart that you see hasn't been fixed yet so that I can add the wedding details or other sentiment at a later date.

So here it is - a bit photo heavy I'm afraid


I shall enter this in the following challenges

Lili Of The Valley challenge 'Name that tune'  (Love Me Do ~ The Beatles)
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Hearts'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes + option shaped cards'
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'week 110 use snippets' (snippets of card for the die-cuts)
ABC challenge 'E for embellish'
Craft Room challenge 'Ribbons and lace'
My Craft Creations challenge 'Anything goes'
Lothian Crafts challenge 'Love using your dies'
Feeling Crafty challenge 'Dies and/or punches'
The Hobby House challenge 'Anything goes'
