Heart Shaped ATC

On DCI group we are making Heart Shaped ATCs this month. The only requirement was the heart could not be taller than 3-1/2" or wider than 2-1/2". I made Faux Velvet paper as seen in this post, only sprayed on a small amount of Perfect Pearls copper in the mix. I cut out this heart shape and colored the edges with Coffee Bean Brilliance ink.
I had a nice sized piece of brown mat board that I ran through an embossing folder and then used a key hole die to cut out that shape. Colored the edges with a black marker and used Coffee Bean Brilliance ink over the surface.
Adhered the key hole to the heart with black brads after placing some tissue tape under the key opening. Added black ribbon, a flower with the tips inked with Coffee Bean Brilliance ink and the word "Love" stamped on with dark brown StazOn ink, and used another black brad to attach a small key.
I've titled it "Love Opens the Heart".
