Beautiful Life

This is the card that my son will give to his Nan on Sunday...

I've used 3 different Echo Park Beautiful Life papers for this card.
After sticking down the red damask design paper, I die-cut a heart from the floral paper using the largest plain heart from Marianne's scalloped heart set. I then made the frame for the aperture by using the same large plain heart and the scalloped heart dies from kraft cardstock.
I added some faux stitching by paper piercing and dragging a brown marker through the holes.
'Nan' was cut using my Dienamics By The Letter dies.
My sentiment at the top is a stamp by Inkadinkado.
The flower in the centre is just a stacked mix taken from my stash and secured with a spotty brad.
