I have made this card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge, this week the challenge was to make a card using patterned paper. I have used paper from a free download over at Shabby Princess and the image is a Penny Black stamp which I have watercoloured and added Glamour Dust to the heart. I have tied some organza ribbon down the left hand side but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.
