Challenge 8 from Crafty Pad

This is my entry for Challenge 8 the theme was Love.

The background is made from eggshell that was crushed onto the card and coloured using an ink pad. I rubbed the ink so it was not too thick with a kitchen paper towel and used gold glitter glue to create the outline giving it a mosaic look. The silver heart is metal and was secured using contact glue and red glitter glue around the outside. I finished it off with the stick on ribbon and small flowers.
Inside I made a pocket and covered it with paper that has a heart design on it. I made an ATC card with contrasting heart design paper and used a heart stamp and a heart shaped brad and wording that is embossed.
