My heart is with you

Just a quick little post today. Here's a card using an expected item...Can you guess what it is? Why it's packing tape. The red pattern and the green pattern  below are actually printed packing tape from the  local craft store. Its like transparencies but with adhesive!

I started by layering the green tape on a blank white paper. There are layers of red, notepaper and then my lady  and poppy image covered with red  patterned tape. The poppy appliques and crystal red hearts came next. The final touches were tiny heart flower rhinestones,shiny red german scrap and the stamped sentiment "My heart is with you".

Hope you will use something unexpected this week to charge up your creativity,
artfully yours gerri
