Valentine

Quite a while ago I remember seeing a 'sideways heart' card. I wish I could remember who made it so that I could give credit. Alas, my memory fails me. Whoever it was, "Thank you" for the idea.



The BP is Laura Ashley Love Song and it is flocked. It is very pretty paper and it is a shame I covered so much of it up!
For quite a simple card it took me a few hours to make, mainly because of all the cutting out and also that I couldn't find the wire I wanted.

This fits Joanna Sheen's February challenge as the subject is 'Hearts'.

Thank you for your visit. Your comments are really appreciated.

How beautiful Irene, I like these heart shaped cards too, but I don't think I'd have the patience to cut it all out!
It wasn't Bev that had the original was it? look here http://bevscrafts.blogspot.com/2009/01/whiff-of-joy-valentines-card-challenge.html

Ooo,Chrissie, I looked at Bev's card. It is fabulous!
I must must have been last year when I saw the card I was talking about.
I do remember the comment was that it came about by accident.

It is a stunning card - when I saw Bev's I thought I'd like to try it sometime - but never got around to doing it yet (also I'm scared 'cos mine would probably be rubbish!!) Yours has turned out fantastically!
