Heart Throb

A heartfelt thanks is the theme for Challenge #7 at Pile It On.   Our sponsor is Stampotique.  I chose to use Heart Throb for my card.  He reminds me of a boy that was in my grammar school, Jeffrey R.  I wonder what ever became of him... but I digress...
In case you can't tell the open scallop border is cut from felt.  I can't believe how perfect a match it is for the card stock.  That card stock is embossed with hearts, which don't show up very well either. 

don't forget the inside - more oppurtunity for ripping
A little ripping and tearing always warms my heart and looks good with the image.  Embellies down to a minimum to make it masculine and it's a done deal.

Here's the deets:
Stamp - Heart Throb #6057

ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and Ranger "Scattered Straw"
paper - Best Occasion cs for base and mat; Bazzill "earth tone' pack and "pinecone" cs; Provo Craft "Heritage Music Score" dp
miscellaneous - copics; felt; twine; heart embossing folder; MFT open scallop die-namic; brown bic pen
