to Heal your Heart…

Hi everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Hope you all settled back into work today after the easter holidays…

I made another card similar to the one I made yesterday.. and boy was this one a marathon! it took me 3 hours to make it

There is a lot of painting, inking, machine stitching and paper cutting in it to be fair lol

So here it is

I used the paper line from Basic Grey “Hello Luscious”

There is also Glitz Design Patterned paper on the card too, mainly on the inside panels

I also used may arts lace ribbon cut in half as the closures for the card

The I added some hearts, tags and buttons to the front of the card to finish it off…

I will come back tomorrow and add a full supplies list, as its well past midnight here and I have work in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚
