A wrapped heart

Here is the last of the Valentine's Day cards I have for you this week.  This one was inspired by the challenge photo over at The Card Concept.  

When I saw the photo I was immediately drawn to the wrapped letters and figured there must be some way to do that on a card.  It's not quite as easy as it looked, but I'm still happy with the results.  And more importantly, I'm sure the little person getting this card is going to love it.  

I took two heart die cuts and glued them together to add a  little stability before picking my pink twine to wrap the heart.  The wrapped heart is then attached to the card with foam tape to help overcome the twine.  There is a Stardream heart under the twine heart for some shine, The heart sits on a vellum back with a glittered border.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you have a minute, I'd love to hear from you.
