Follow your heart ...

My second card for the day - the pity is that I didn't manage to complete it before darkness fell so the photographs are not as good as earlier.

This is another card involving a stitched heart.

This card is a bit of a first for me as it actually features washi tape!  I own quite a lot of washi tape but have never used it on a card, up until today the only thing I've used it for has been to hold a die in place before running it through my Big Shot or for securing a stencil!!

For this card I used:

Sizzix Heart Framelits
STAMPlorationsnSubway Art Builders DARE
Stampin Up - Heart Mask, Riding Hood Red Ink and Paper Piercing Pack Essentials
Golden Gel Modling Paste.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #27

The Mixed Media Card Challenge #8 - the theme is Love with the optional twist of buttons - I've had these tiny star buttons in my stash for years - it's great to be prompted to use them!
