The heart punches were punched from Sizzix mini punches.

The paper has been recylced from my daughter's Barbie doll carton. I decorated the hearts with pop up glitter glue.

The raised effect was obtained with double sided foam tape.

This card was put up for sale in the charity card sale in the school.

My daughter's friend liked it so much that I could not resist giving it to her for free. It was lovely to see her face light up!

I quilled the flowers myself and stuck them on to offwhite mulberry paper from India.
For the leaves I folded green textured paper and cut the leaves to give a 3 D look.
I sold the card at a sale in my daughter's school for USD 3.

I hope it will not be considered rude if I thank you all from the bottom of my heart in a communal email.
It feels good to be encouraged by like minded souls. Thank you so much for the kind words.
