Stampin Chic Technique Challenge # 2

Morning's Wednesday and that means it's my turn to show my card for Technique Challenge # 2 over on Stampin Chic.......the challenge this week set by my lovely teamies Katy and to

Easy Peasy Card.....I thought but  OH NO......would have probably gone for my favourite shabby chic type flower but my teamie Kim had already done that back to the drawing board.....I decided to go with a flower made out of heart shapes in 3 different sizes......and this is where it became complicated....didn't have three heart punches  in three different ended up drawing the hearts freehand and cutting them all bang goes the easy peasy's now turned into a marathon.  The stem of the flower is stitched using the ribbon and then a separate piece of ribbon slipped behind and tied in a knot for the leaves. Finished off by adding some dots punched out of the patterned paper.
