Making resolutions are easy...keeping them...a whole other story! I resolve in 2013 to use as many pieces from my scrap box as I possibly can (or at least try to once a week). This card is the first and was part of a 'Husband Saver' gift for my niece's hubby. He is a policeman and spends most of his day chasing criminals and dealing with idiots so doesn't have time (most of the time) to purchase (yikes what a horrid word! LOL) a beautiful card for that special occasion! The heart obviously uses ump-teen pieces of scrap glued on to a heart base and then sprayed with gold glimmer mist and covered with glitter. The vine behind from Memory Box didn't quite fit the die but you can't see the missing parts! I used an OLD folder and a last years Valentine stamp from Mikes. Resolution situation..so far.. so good!

Wow, this is such an awesome way to use up scraps!!!!!! I would've never thought of assembling a heart from flowers punched out of scraps!!! I'm definitely going to do this too!!! Totally awesome card!! I LOVE the glitter!!!
