Farewell Summer Love

Well, it's farewell to Hurricane Irene and at least here at home, we're sorta much back to normal. I do promise to catch up with everyone, I know I've missed some of your fabulous creations. I want to thank you so much for your all kind words of concern.

For today's piece, I have a card that is for my first challenge that I am hosting as a Creative Team member of Flying Unicorn. Do stop by to play, to find friendship or see some wonderful inspiration. The challenge is called "Farewell Summer Love" and you are to use any kind of heart and sea shell in your creation. You know those are two of my favorite things! It can be a card, layout, collage or altered piece. There even is a fabulous prize from the Flying Unicorn store to be won!

All the paper I used was from the The Magic of Oz Collection carried at the store of Flying Unicorn. Who would of thought that the land of Oz could be so romantic. LOL. I created a rosette by cutting a heart shape, adding a glittered shell, some netting and a tiny sparkly heart. Some rhinestones, a vintage image, rub ons and some ink kissed edged  and it was adieu to my "Wicked Heart" of summer.

Hope your wicked heart won't get you into trouble this week.
take care, gerri
