A Shabby Chic Heart

I haven't been able to do much in the way of crafting this month for various reasons but this is something I made earlier which I can now show you as the person it was intended for has now received it.
A very talented crafting friend called Sara has built a wonderful site ( with templates she has created for shaped cards. There is a forum for members and she very kindly invited me to a 2 day get-together with workshops. I was looking forward to going  but sadly a painful shoulder injury meant I had to cancel at the last minute. This heart was part of a thank you gift for the lady who had organised the workshops. Everyone who was due to attend decorated a heart and they were all attached together to form bunting. This was my contribution.
The template was provided by Sara for uniformity. The heart is @13cm long to give you an idea of size. I wanted to go for a shabby chic look so I used cardboard as a base and tore off part of the top layer to reveal the corrugated part. I gave it a wash of picket fence Distress Stain and added some crackle glaze. Various Sizzix and Marianne flower dies were layered up and added. I used some of my garden jute string to make a flower and added some lace and a few pearls. The quote is by Simple Expressions.
