This month the challenge is to "Stamp Your Heart Out" incorporate love/hearts in your card or project.
I usually let the theme percolate in my head for a day before I start, of course I never end up where I think I'm going but that's OK with me. This month was no exception. I was stewing over a project, figuring I would use it as a Valentine's gift for hubby but as you can see that is not what turned up. Would you be surprised to know that there was a brown, red and plaid paper and a pink harlequin paper on my desk when I started out?

I had been browsing around the MFT gallery looking for a something done with the "Mermaid WTG" stamp (I used that for another challenge). I spotted one of my cards made with the "Who's that Harvesting Girl?" stamp set and thought one of the stamps was a bunch of hearts. So as I was looking for this stamp set I was pulling other MFT stamps with hearts. turns out the harvesting girl doesn't have hearts but that idea was just stuck in my head so I decided I'd just draw some hearts to put in the basket. The rest of the image is paper pieced. I pulled some die-namics to use for embellishments. Of course I had to use heart charm and some pearls to finish it off.
Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Who's That Harvesting Girl?"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Ranger "Frayed Burlap"
paper - Bazzill "Ruby Slippers" cs; Stampin' Up "Kraft" cs and "Pink Pirouette" dp; My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Two "Blush" dp; Recollections Printed Scrapbook Papers dp
miscellaneous - copics; glaze pen; baker's twine heart charm; MFT die-namics "scallop ribbon", "faux crochet", "Fancy Flourish" and trio of hearts; open weave ribbon; pearls
