Burlap Hearts

I bought some sheets of burlap some time ago and I love how it adds texture to a card. It cuts beautifully with dies and here I added some double sided sheet to the reverse of the fabric before cutting. The hearts are from Little B.
The backing strip is a print, made using a piece of bubblewrap on my Gelli Plate. The flowers are from Stampin' Up. I'm not sure of the make of the little sprigs of foliage! The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

I've just had a new chair delivered... I'm delighted! 
This one swivels as well as reclines, so I can swoosh around to look out of the window if I have a fancy to!
