Pile It On! Challenge - Heartfelt Thanks

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, we want to see projects for the theme:

'Heartfelt Thanks'
(Something to say 'Thanks' featuring at least one heart)

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

The prize is a whopping $30 gift certificate to spend in the fabulous Stampotique online store!

The DT were very kindly sent stamps from Stampotique to work with for this challenge...I chose 'Heart Flowers'. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then added a Hero Arts sentiment underneath (from the 'Anytime Messages' set. The papers are all from the 'Hopscotch' pad by BasicGrey...I embossed the plain one using my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder...sanding lightly over the surface to reveal the white core. I distressed all of the edges using 'Old Paper' and 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Inks, and used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the scalloped borders. The little heart was in a pack of buttons from a charity shop...and I attached it using some button twine (from the Ribbon Girls)...the brads are also BasicGrey.

Here are the challenges I've Piled On!:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Pile It On! Challenge.
