Burlap Wedding

This week at Cheery Lynn Designs the challenge theme is "Wonderful Weddings"
Perfect timing for me, as I had a "country wedding" to attend this Saturday....
their wedding took place on a quarter horse farm her parents own....
part of the decorations and theme was "burlap".......
I had given her  a shower gift in a vintage type wire basket that had a burlap liner....
she loved it and used the basket for her wedding cards.....
 
 
So, I wanted to make a card within the theme and choose to add burlap behind
those gorgeous Cheery Lynn hearts....
I think it turned out kind of cute...a bit elegant and country wedding....
 
 
Supplies used:
Cheery Lynn dies Two of Hearts DL128..you get 2 sizes, I used the smaller one
and Flourish Leaf Strip B178....this is  a "must have" die, it cuts 5 sets of leaves
with one cut!

Wow! This is really something ... I love the hearts and the leaves ... need to look into those dies ... stunning colours too! Are the hearts and leaves cut in fabric?
