Totally Papercrafts #50 Add A Heart

Time again for another challenge at Totally Papercrafts, and our lovely host, Sue, has chosen the theme
Add A Heart
Hearts are a great embellie to use on all sorts of cards - birthday, anniversary, wedding and, of course, with Valentine's Day just a few weeks away, you could make a card for that special someone!
Our sponsor this week is Lili of the Valley  - I just love their cute stamps - and the prize for one lucky winner will be 2 stamps of their choice.

 I have used their adorable wedding couple stamp - coloured with Copics and, with invisible thread, I stitched some little beads to the wedding outfit and flowers.
 I found the hearts at the bottom of my craft box and covered one with some very fine Art Institute glitter. IRL this glitter is GORGEOUS. I wonder if they sell it by the bucket load!!
Don't look too closely at the stitching -my sewing machine decided to throw a wobbly!! I have tried to cover the worst of it up.

Challenges - 
Cupcake - Weddings               Pollycraft - Pastels    
Papertake - Ribbon and Pearls                  Top Tip - All Sentimental
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo ( Gems, Glitter, Ribbon )

Sentiment Stamp - from the Whiff of Joy, Aladin 2001 Nights Collection.   DP - Papermania, Blueberry Hill.  Fancy corner - Sizzix Die, Architectural Accents. Heart charm from the Hobby House. Lace, pearls and ribbon from my stash.
