Rustic heart.

Hi everyone, been back at work for just over a week now, so am catching up on a few challenges this weekend!

At Inspired by all the Little Things there is this gorgeous inspiration pic.

I was inspired by the woodgrain and the distressed red heart. It's a bit hard to see in the photo but I've used a paper distresser tool on the edge of the heart.
My son advised me to go shopping so that I could find a "you" stamp with a font that matched this diecut. That has got to be a first lol! He won't pay if I find one though!

The theme at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday is the colour of love. It's red for me!

  1. I love your fabulous take on the inspiration photo!

  2. I love the woodgrain look on your card. I'm also crazy about the Love font. This is really pretty.

  3. LOVE the woodgrain background Cathy. The heart hanging from the brad (nail head) looks perfect. I like that the Love die and "you" stamp are different. :) Have to tell you that I HAD to HAVE rusting powder after you card with the corrugated card and butterflies. Ordered it and the bronze stain ... and of course a few other things while I was at it. :) xx

  4. Great take on the theme. Your woodgrain background looks so good with your heart and sentiment. The Love font is fabulous.

  5. You captured the feel of the photo perfectly in this lovely Valentine! Thanks so much for joining us at Inspired By All The Little Things!

  6. Wonderful take on the theme. Love it. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Gayatri xx

  11. Fabulous woodgrain effect and love how you did it. Gorgeous card and what a helpful son you've got...even if he wasn't going to pay LOL x

  12. I love this rustic wood background Cathy and the way you have hung the pretty heart on to it, and that is a lovely die cut sentiment font which finishes it beautifully. x
