Paper Pieced Heart

Was in a bit of a restless mood and the shear number of scraps in my bin was bothering me so I decided to use some up. Not that the heart used very many scraps but at least no new papers were hurt in the making of this card. The inspiration came from Splitcoast Stampers to try a paper pieced quilt block. The pattern was in my closet. I layered some adhesive on a block of scrap white and then built the heart around the it. I then cut the scraps down to size and mounted it all on the blue scalloped Nestie square. The sentiment is from Stamping Up's retired "All Year Cheer" set. Somehow I've never managed to get a "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment or any that express "Love". Guess what's on my list now...
