Double D - HEARTS

Dear Ones~
As I write this, it's February 1st, so you know what THAT means. This month it's all things HEARTS over at Double D. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:
And here is my card:

I had so much fun making this card. That heart is a rosette made with a strip of 12" patterned paper. You can see a video by Maymay HERE to see how it's done. And the card design is France Martin's creation. She has Frencie's, her video can be seen HERE. I thought it would be fun to mesh the two together and set the heart rosette inside the window.  This card has an insert on the inside with patterned paper on the front so that it shows through the opening. You really need to go watch Frencie's video where she makes her design. So many possibilities, I can't wait to make more of these.

A closeup of the Rosette. I'm tellin' ya, you need to try these!! They are so much fun.
