Double D Challenge - Anything with a Heart

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and today's theme is:
and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .


 I have drawn inspiration today from the lower right corner vase of hearts.
The dies I have used are:

Impression Obsession - Large Porcelain Pitcher (DIE978)
Impression Obsession - Dies - Porcelain Pitcher

Impression Obsession - Heart Stems (DIE053)

Impression Obsession - Dies - Heart Stems

Elizabeth Craft - Garden Notes Ivy Vine (#1297)
Pretty Pink Posh - Simple Sentiments STAMPS & DIES

I die cut the pitcher 3 times.  On the front of one of the pitcher panels I spread white glue then laid out my heart stems.  Next I glued another pitcher on top of that and finally the 3rd cut panel on top of that.  When I adhered it to my card front, I glued down a few of the heart stems but not all of them.

 So be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

Ooops almost forgot to mention the prize that you'll be playing for ... check out this fun Poppy Stamps 'Hugs Heart' die.  Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!
