Vintage Hearts

I found some doilies at the local dollar store and knew that I could use them on my cards. However, they were rectangular in shape and I needed a square doily. So...I cut a doily apart, matched up the edges and attached it to my card.

The theme for Week #12 at The Shabby Tea Room is "Dear to My Heart." I found a template for a pocket heart valentine at PaperZone and reduced the template several times so the hearts would fit on my card. After attaching the resized doily, I sponged it with Color Box dune ink, created several hearts, added a Prima flower, and used a sentiment from SU's Whimsical Words, which is one of my favorite stamp sets!

Stamps: SU's Whimsical Words; Paper: K&Company; Ink: Color Box Dune, Ranger Vintage Photo; Accessories: EK Success butterfly punch, Prima flower, Marvy Uchida heart punch, doily from the local dollar store, rhinestones from ACMoore, and scrumpled seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy shop.
