Paperclip Heart

 Paperclip heart
The heart embellishment on this card is a 7 Gypsies paperclip and I have to admit, getting it to stick down (using pva glue) was a bit tricky.

I used a set of wavy edged square punches (a gift from my friend Lisa - Craftfairy)  for the centre mat, which is mat and layered and then backed with a couple of foam pads for added dimension.
I added the larger plain backing square to spread the design and fill up the space subtly, drawing the eye into the centre of the card.

I have some other heart shaped paperclips that would have looked equally as good …. well perhaps not the turqouise one!

I would definately use the turquoise one - i love that colour, it'd look fab on a pink background!
