You stole my Heart.....Basic grey & ABC challenge

I HAVE USED-wooden heart
Basic Grey Sweet blossom paper
metal button
strip of calico
small bull dog clip
dried flower heads
old book for the letters
"Help"...... i am a heart addict who can,t stop crafting with love and hearts.......oh well i guess it could be worse...i could be addicted to skulls and bones which when i think about it that would suit my younger son who is into ......well meant to be music i just call it a noise,lol.
This started as a blank wooden heart which i covered front and back with Basic Grey Sweet blossoms paper,grunged and sanded to age it a little more.{you know me...}
Ripped a strip of calico for hanging and popped a button on top.
Some dried flowers and a little bull dog clip was added to hang the gift card, made using an offcut from the same paper and adding the words-"with love" on the front.
For the words on the heart i used a very old book,cut out the letters i wanted and glued into place.
I have entered it into Basic grey challenge which is Hearts and you have to use at least one of the Basic grey products,hopefully i have filled the criteria.
Also the ABC challenge which is A for Anniversary...thought this little heart would make a little keepsake for that special day to a loved one.
