Piece of my heart

Edited with a new picture. I realised the heart should have a space where the piece is taken from - doh. So have now coloured it black.

I've made this card for a new challenge blog Waltzingmouse sketch challenge using the sketch they provided. I really enjoyed this challenge. I've used a new PB stamp from a set and then some prized spotted paper (it matched so well had to let it go!). I made a faux button by turning over the spotty paper and embossing and cutting with a nestie. Used some garden string to tie it on and rubbed over the edges of the die cut with SU rose red ink.

Hehehe Wonderful card Lin, love the colours; red, black and white, or deep pink instead of red always work so well together. Love the string too.
