Fetch A Sketch Challenge 42

It's time for a brand new challenge at Fetch A Sketch and here is the sketch for this fortnight:
And we are sponsored by the very generous Anice at Funky Hand!  To view the prize on offer to one lucky entrant, just pop over to Fetch A Sketch!

And here is my take on the sketch.  To be quite honest it wasn't supposed to look anything like this - the only constant was to use up scraps!  But I had an Eureka moment and dug out my Primitive Sizzix heart dies and the rest is history!  I've used an X Cut fancy die for the card shape and added brads and organza ribbon to hold it together.

 
There are two different sized heart and I've used papers from Colour Me Happy cd which after cutting the edges have been inked and then I doodled a faux stiched line around the edges (and on the card blank too).  

I cut 4 of the larger hearts and scored down the middle and stuck with silicone glue - you can do two layers at once and then glue all together once dry.  The smaller hearts have been added with silicone glue behind them too for a bit more depth.  A few half pearls and the card is done!

Hope you can join in with the sketch - for more details please see the challenge blog at Fetch A Sketch!
