Rainbow Heart Flower

I couldn't resist playing at CASE Study this week - our muse is the talented Laura Bassen, and her card for our inspiration is this sweet one that uses a rainbow of different hearts:

 

I remember making a flower out of die-cut or punched hearts a few years ago here and here and decided to use that idea for my entry:


supplies: white cardstock, a selection of PTI cardstock, Nesties scalloped heart die, Hero Arts CL272 All Occasion Messages, white heart button and natural jute

Each heart is folded in half and then nested together in a circle to form the flower.  This is one of my favorite sentiments and I thought it was perfect for the card!  I'm without a sewing machine here, so I couldn't add that detail to my card.....used the bit of jute instead.

And this is another entry into the Simon Says Stamp "anything Goes" challenge.
