From the Heart

I decided today to try an different style of card. I think that I like this style. More eclectic and less formal. I normally have more symmetry. But I like this and will definitely be working on it more.
The colours I used were Not quite Navy (which I am in love with at the moment!), Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Old Olive. I also used some patterned paper I've had for years, Versamark and Stampin' Pastels.
The large oval and its topper I made with my X-Cutter template and the scallops were made with the SU corner rounder.
I used some Old Olive grosgrain ribbon that I salvaged off a card that had been ruined in the previous incident that I don't talk about anymore:( I water coloured with my Smiths watercolour pencils and my Stampin' Spots.
Hope you like it. Please let me know what you think as I could do with some Constructive criticism. (Don't be too harsh or I may cry - seriously!)Lol.
Have a great day!
P.S. If you click on the picture you get a lot brighter view. It looks very dark in this one.
