Hearts and Arrows

Hearts And Arrows !!!!This is a current challenge theme going on at  Lulupu Feb Hearts and arrows Challenge.. The idea of shaker card came to my mind. As I started gathering the  supplies it actually started getting difficult.. the challenge also states not to use the regular pink and red love colors :)  But I couldnt resist choosing a bright red glitter foam sheet which I hoarded for last three years for the shaker frame heart which  is the focal point of the project..

Created the photo frame using 5*6 pieces of thick chipboard and covered with Enogreetings pattern papers with a handcut heart frame at the center... This was getting tedious as my fingers started aching in the process of cutting the chipboard with a craft knife. Also hand cut out chipboard arrow piece which is embossed with black embossing powder...After the frame was created made a shaker frame using the foam sheet and acetate sheet.. Finished the project with Little cut outs from the Simple stories pattern papers... Adhered magnets at the back and a chipboard stand so this could be used as fridge magnet or a photo frame on a table...Last but not the least made a cute butterfly dangler charm that i totally loved making and placed it dangling from the arrow with a twine..
