Key To My Heart

Welcome to another challenge, today, for Terrifically Thrilling Thursday, at Shelly's Images! This week's theme is, "All Tied up." Use ribbon, twine, or anything that "ties" on your project! Get busy creating and then hurry over to Shelly's Images and link up your project, for your chance to play along!

The DT is featuring this awesome valentine's/love set, Key To My Heart, which is available, today, only, for a special price, in the Shelly's Images Store.

For my project today, I altered this cute heart tree, that I found in the dollar section at Target. I'm using the Key To My Heart, by Shelly's Images. The images are colored with Promarkers. I printed each thing multiple times and cut them out using fussy cutting. I used various ribbon scraps from my stash to tie the pieces onto the tree. The Keys are attached to some of the hearts with foam mounting tape.

Here is a close up so you can read the sentiment.

I am entering this altered metal tree in the following challenges:

Of course, you KHOW I love the Shelly's images you used. Thanks for playing along at Penny's and we hope you will play along again next time. Your work is always stunning!
