Have a Heart

... and make it the focal point of your tag ... this is the current challenge over at the Blog Challenge Garden. I haven't participated for quite a while but could not let this one pass (lol)
As base I used a simple Kraft card tag and covered it with BasicGrey patterned paper which I distressed around the edges and stamped on with Kaisercraft stamps (ink: Elzybells whipped cream and shattered straw distress ink). I added some paper lace, a bit of cheese cloth and some scrap music paper. The heart itself is cut from Basic Grey patterned paper and seriously distressed around the edge and slightly ripped on the surface. Two ribbon knots and some bling are the final touches. Petra.
