I have you in my heart.....

In my Heart

supplies: white cardstock, imaginisce "Lucy Bird" printed paper, Hero Arts F5158 Heart Winged Butterfly, CL476 With Sympathy, Versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts clear ultra fine embossing powder, black wire

Here is my card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, to make a square card.  I remember doing a similar design back in 2010, after a tutorial by Hero Arts artist Nancy Taylor.  Simply, I stamped this old favorite Heart Winged butterfly on printed paper 3 times, heat embossed it, then cut it out, and glued all 3 together, trimming as needed.

In My Heart #3

I cut off the original antennae and used some black wire instead.  I love this sentiment with this image!
