DS4J challenge #73...embellishments

Good morning friends,
Another challenge at Digistamps4Joy. I have the honour of hosting this challenge and the theme I have chosen is to make your own embellishments. Now you can use anything you like..paper, ribbon, clay, metal - whatever takes your fancy. I have decided to use shrink plastic to make a heart for my card. I have written a short tutorial about using shrink plastic, just in case you haven't yet worked with it. It really is great fun.

For my card I used the following
Image...Pocket love available  Here. I coloured it with Distress inks.
Papers....I ran the plain red through the cuttlebug with Swiss dots folder, and then lightly sanded it to bring out the white. The striped is from my stash.
Sentiment ....peel-offs
Beads and pins to finish.

I hope you will join in this week. The DT have made some lovely cards with lots of inspiration. There is a great prize to be won and even if you don't have a DS4J image, you can still be in the running for a prize.

I will enter some challenges.
