Our Craft Lounge - Heart Felt Challenge

This is one of two posts today....so be sure to scroll for more inspiration!

This week's Our Craft Lounge Challenge is a Heart Felt one!   Check out the details on the OCL blog!

For my fabric, I upcycled!  That's just so much more fun to say than recycled!  The heart is the silky fabric lining of a man's tie!  We bought a gaudy orange tie at Good Will to cut up and shred for a pirate's belt for a school project.  The lining was this fabby fabric, and I loved the color scheme, so though my hubby rolled his eyes at me, I tossed it on my stamping desk...not knowing what I would do with it....but it was just pretty!

I used a heart punch in the center of a Spellbinders' Fleur De Lis Square Die.  I used the heart to frame my tiny fabric scrap!  Found some perfectly matchy-matchy papers in my scrap drawer...and some more perfectly fun ribbons in my ribbon scraps. 

I finished the card off with a sentiment from the Say It With Flowers set.  I love the font of this set!

I like the image of the Zebra, and the way you made your card with it.

I really like both of your cards. Using the fabric in the second one was very clever, and I love the blue.
