Dilly Beans Weekly Challenge - "Smile"

Greetings!!  Sorry I've been super quiet this week.  It's school vacation and I've been spending a lot of time with my kiddies doing puzzles, reading books, snuggling watching movies, taking walks, etc.  We are super crafty all of the time so we're all enjoying hanging out and just enjoying time together before our fun, albeit sometimes hectic, schedule starts up again on Monday. 

But today I'm here with you bringing the weekly Dilly Beans challenge your way!  This week's challenge is called 'In Stitches'.  With Megan's amazing images this can be interpreted in so many ways!  Here's mine!

As you can see, I printed out #334 - Heart on two different patterned papers.  I then carefully trimmed them out and adhered them to my embossed card base which measures 3" x 5.5".  I hand stitched three big X stitched on each heart alternating sides. 
 
I adhered a scattering of tiny pearls and simply finished off the interior.  

I hope you come join us over at the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog!! 

Crafty Hugs!
Meredith
