Card Patterns Sketch 149 - January 21, 2012 Heart Locket

Today I'm playing along with Card Patterns Sketch 149 by Tracy Schultz.  I saw the circular shape, and the heart and decided to make a non-traditional Valentine card that will be headed off to my sister Kathy who appreciates things that are beyond the ordinary. 

I made the beautiful centerpiece by layering the wings from Spellbinders Heraldry set in two colors.  I sanded them to make the embossing stand out and give them a distressed look.  I topped them with a silver foil cut heart locket from the Timeless Heritage set.   I set that on top of a piece of crinkled wired organza ribbon.  The heart is hand crochet by my mom - and that beautiful ornate Love stamp is by Serendipity.

This one was hard to photograph - I was tempted to tape it down so it would stop rolling away!!  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.  If you'd like to play along this week you can get all the details here:  http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/2012/01/sketch-149.html

Whoa, I think I just found a new challenge (love that sketch) and the perfect Valentine inspired card for my dd. This is right up her alley and I love how you put this card together. The shaped card intrigues me as I get "stuck in a rut" and I definitely need to break out of it. Thanks for the mojo Jeanne and hope you have a wonderful weekend.
