Heartfelt Creations Door To My Heart Hanging

 Ok, so I was in my craft room Saturday afternoon thinking about this Sentiment I was about to use for this creation.  The Door of My Heart" was the inspiration for the results.  This is not what I had intended-it was suppose to be a card!!!  lol  But as I was pulling out punches and die cuts this took on a life of it's own and became a wall hanging, I kid you not!!! hahahaha

 How could I not use this beautiful Martha Stewart deep Heart Scroll Punch with the Heartfelt Creations Chateau Gate.  And while I was playing with the heart, I noticed how beautifully the decorative piece from the Decorative Butterfly/Border looked under the heart-just like it was made to accent the heart.
 This was the first time I opened up that Victorian Velvet Distress Ink that I got for Christmas.  Boy is that ever a beautiful color.  Be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations Blog for the full details on how to create one of these.  Thanks for stopping by!

I love, love, love this card - but then I love all your cards my friend. Your cards just have so much joy baked into them (I just had a funny thought - you baking part of a card - if anyone can it would be you). What a great scene - wonder how much this weighs? Hugz.

If this isn't a winner, I don't know what is! You entered quite a few challenges with this...hope you get something.

The punching/die cuts are nothing short of amazing, Carol. I feel like I say the same thing on all of your creations, but that's how I really feel about each one! You always knock stuff out of the park.
