DT card for Eureka Challenge #193 - Quilting or Sewing

When I saw the theme for this week's challenge (Eureka Stamps) I knew I wanted to use a quilting theme, and will probably save this for my sister.  She is an excellent quilter, and owns several specialized sewing machines to work with.  The image is Eureka Heart on a Pendant digi #904, and the sentiment digi 24702.  I thought paper piecing would work well with this image.  However, because of the patterns included on the heart, I had to use solid colored paper.  I am very happy with the result - a dark vanilla and light purple combination.  I used a metallic gel pen for the stripes, and to color the tiny flowers.  I also colored the bow with the sparkly metallic pen.  This was also a great opportunity to use my new Darice Button embossing folder.  A strip of embossed faux stitching (Cuttlebug), some washi tape, and  Prima flower complete the card.  ETA:  I should have mentioned I cut out the heart and bow before adhering the pieced sections.
