St Lukes Challenge Mid Month Post......

Our challenge over at St Lukes this month is Love and Lace.
While doing a bit of sorting our recently I found this Spirelli hearted green heart...Do you remember Spirelli?  So rather than throw it away decided to use it for my mid month post for St Lukes charity card challenge.  Using gold thread to wind around the heart, I cut out 2 other hearts one to layer onto the Spirelli heart and another small one to mount a gold heart shaped button I found.
Thought I would get away from the usual red as the spirelli shaped heart was green.  Mounted onto to paper from my stash, the lace part of my card is a Memory Box die and just added a Craftwork Card sentiment....

Anne this just beautiful. I love to see something different done with hearts & this is wonderful. What a gorgeous card with the gold thread around it & the that great little edging you used. You're just too creative my friend. and it's great to see something non traditional.
Hugs, Janie

Well it does pay to have a turn out now and again - I'd forgotten all about Spirelli!! This is very effective and a nice change from all the red hearts around. That lace die is beautiful.
