Less Is More Challenge ~ Purple~Patchwork Heart

This card is what you might call "hot off the press".....
I just finished it for the challenge at "Less Is More"....
this week the challenge is Predominatly Purple....
I am not a purple person...though my flower gardens are full of purple....
after much thought (and a few trial and errors) I decided to do a patchwork heart....
I punched several one inch squares, adhered them to a lightweight cardstock....
then cut a heart with a heart die in my Cuttlebug....
I embossed my main cardstock with a SU embossing folder....
stamped a label image called Labels Four..also from SU
the sentiment itself is stamped with SU Concord Crush....
because it is a Valentine, I added some pearls to the embossed flowers....
that's it...hope you enjoy it!!
