Flowers and Hearts

The challenge at Make My Monday this week is Hearts and Flowers, I used the colours from the toppings choice at Paper Sundaes.  The heart dangles are for 365Cards which is to hang at least two items from string or twine etc (I hope chain counts). There are a few pieces of metal here for Shopping Our Stash (the chain and heart charms I used from my jewellery making stash).  I added vintage lace (which my mum gave me from her old bits and pieces) for Oldie But a Goodie and made it an Anniversary card for Charisma Cardz.  I wanted to add a pearl (another topping for Paper Sundaes) in the flower centre but needed a brad to hold it all together.

Supplies:  blue cardstock, dp from inque boutique Memoirs mini papers, parchment paper for rosette, Kaisercraft 'Tis the Season dp for blue flower, vintage lace, antique bronze heart charms and fine chain, jump rings, brad, Memento Rich Cocoa ink, ds tape.

Tools:  Sizzix Big Shot, QuicKutz Nesting Scallops die, Spellbinders Sunflowers die, MFT Prima Donna Petals die, Kaisercraft Occasions sentiment stamp, hole piercer, jewellery pliers.
