Simply Create Too Challenge 30 - Valentines Day / Hearts

It's Friday so time for a new Simply Create Too challenge!  And a rather appropriate theme too:

Valentines Day / Hearts

I bought this wicker heart during the summer from I think, Poundstretchers, as I knew it would come in handy at some point!  Plus the fact it was still lying around on the table and I was getting fed up of moving it!  And to keep the shabby chic look (and because I couldn't be bothered) I've not painted over it but simply added an organza bow made from two different ribbons plus some seed beads wrapped in wire.

The cute bunny Wedding couple has been decoupaged as I fancied a change - the image is from Polkadoodles - Cherryblossom Lane cd.  I've used the pre coloured image which has actually been coloured by Nikky and it is really lovely and soft and delicate and I knew I'd be more heavy handed if I coloured it.

I've added some stickles here and there too and when it was shown on Create and Craft in early December it went down a treat with the presenter!

Good luck with the Simply Create Too challenge!
