Mosaic Heart

I could not resist to play in the Paper Smooches challenge  - with such a pretty inspiration picture.


I made my card a few days ago, but waited to post it, since I wanted to surprise my sister - I made it for her. I had to just copy that heart  - too tempting not to.... I used a Lifestyle Crafts die, which cuts out squares and then I cut it by hand into triangles. 


I tried it on a grey background, but in the end liked the white better with just a little bit of grey sponging around the heart. 


 The sentiment is from Paper Smooches - Sentiment sampler. I added some sequins for extra sparkle. gold triangles I used shimmer paper -- looks really pretty in real life.

I am also linking this card up with Bizzy Becs - "LOVE/FRIENDSHIP"....... 
Time-out challenge - Love and/or Friendship
