Specially for you

Even though valentine's day is past, cards of love/hearts are popular, year-round, as you can tell by this darling from Sherri Baldy at My Besties.  I've colored her with prismas and did faux stitching around, then layered, and put a large doily behind it for the lacy effect.   The upper filigree corners are die cuts with tiny pearls added.   The foliage behind my flowers is also a die cut that's one of my favorites, as is the black heart, which I've used 3-D foam behind to raise it, and then I've added a glitzy heart to the center for a bit of pizzazz.   And, there you have my completed creation - thank you for coming in to view it.
