The Shortest Distance Between Hearts


Today I've had a go at doing something a little different (for me anyway)... a card with no image. I bought a pack of clear sentiment stamps from Hero Arts a little while ago and have never had them out of the pack, so I thought why not try making a card with the sentiment as the focal point. I'm fairly pleased with the result :) I've also used the Photo Inspiration over at Basic Grey Challenges, it's where I got the fab idea for the string of hearts. I made the template for the hearts and drew around it a few times then cut out the shapes. All the stitching is faux... I'm too lazy to go to the trouble of getting my sewing machine out etc! All the papers are Basic Grey (Cupcake & Sugared), and I've added a few pearls, roses and rafia to embellish. Fairly simple but I like it, just have to decide who to send it to now :)
