Flowered Heart Chalkboard

Here is my latest project for my display at the Crafters' Gift Boutique.  I made a bunch of different colored flowers and was playing around with a design but nothing was working for me.  That day I was watching two of my grandchildren so my son, Mike, and wife, Jody, catered in Papa Murphy's pizza.  I was telling Jody about just not finding a good look for the heart.  While I was slicing the pizza, she ambled over to the table, took all the flowers off and came up with the layout you see on the heart.  I was trying to cover the whole heart with flowers which would have made it more difficult to use the chalkboard without crushing the flowers.  Once she simplified the whole thing, it just looked so much better.

Stamp Set: Mixed Bunch; Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals; Card Stock: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Twitterpated Designer Series Paper; Accessories & Tools: Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Blossom Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, 1-3/4" Scallop Punch, Bird Builder Punch, Butterfly Punch (retired), Dazzling Details, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Mini Glue Dots
Once I can find some chalk and an easel, I'll finish this up and set it in my display.  Now it's time for me to get busy with mundane chores.  I have my Customer Appreciation Open House Monday and need to get ready for it.  So much to do, so little time!
