Flowering Heart

I made this card for a sketch challenge on Split Coast. I actually had a really hard time making this sketch look nice. I don't really know why. This is actually one of three cards I made with this sketch.

For this sketch, I wanted something really nice and eye catching for the focal point. I traded (on Etsy) for some chipboard a while back and thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to use it. For some reason, I really fell in love with the idea of covering the chipboard in these little flower punches that I have. The only thing that bugs me a little about this is; to make this look more like a heart, I trimmed the middle part. So, a flower or two is missing some petals. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

This is just a piece of white card stock as the base. I covered the front in scrapbook paper. I trimmed the two stripes I guess you would call them in brown card stock and layered on some sheer white ribbon. I put my little flowering heart on top. Pretty simple but the heart did take a long time to make. This is a no stamping card which is pretty different for me these days.
