This Saturday, a dear SCS friend Sallie, chose the IC site MacKenzie-Childs and is a guest designer for the challenge. As I perused the site, I found a few items that I was inspired by, these slippers for the flower http://www.mackenzie-childs.com/New/...d#.UOirX2HMNJE
and this plate http://www.mackenzie-childs.com/Tabl...d#.UOisrWHMNJF.
I combined both of them into this card.
The weaving was done with one inch strips, adhesive sheet applied to the back, and cut with the sold heart in the fancy heart set from Cheery Lynn. Once all edges were adhered, I went around it with a gold pen.
The flower is made using one of the flowers on the tattered flower die by Tim Holtz. I believe there are 12 layers to this flower. While sewing the button on and layers together, I also sewed a pin to the back. So the recipient will be able to take the flower off the heart and wear it. Once the flower is all sewn up, I spray it with spray starch, soaking it real good, wring it out and blow it dry while while shaking, and fluffing. The flower is attached to a strip of ribbon that I looped from the back of the heart.
Love is embossed in gold to match the edging on the heart.
There's a heart on the inside with the same weaving pattern.

Jennifer, this is awesome! I tried to think of a card for the IC, but I just couldn't figure out anything with all the checkers. But, I LOVE your checkered heart!!! It looks especially cool with the diagonal black and white in the background! Plus, what a gorgeous flower!!!
