I stumbled across this challenge blog today....I couldn't resist playing! :) You're welcome to join the fun CP#3.Here's my interpretation....... TFL!! Details

The heart and key are from an old SU set (Antique Collectibles) I may have used it one time. I decided it would work with this paper from K & Company. The heart and key are heat embossed, cut out and colored in with markers. The bow on the heart is paper pieced. Some stitching, sewing, and sponging added to the antique look. The sentiment and flourish are from an embellishment pack. I also, used the only fiskars punch I own to create the border. I may end up wearing it out before I get a different border punch! :) I guess I should make buying a new one a priority! The ribbon is Wright's. I like to buy it by the yard. The texture is amazing. To keep it from fraying I add a small amout of clear paper glaze to the edges. The brown, velvet lacy ribbon is also bought by the yard. I bought it at Hobby Lobby.

Stamp: (SU) Antique Collectibles
