Mixed Media MDF Heart

Greetings all!  Thanks to all my visitors and followers for stopping by today.

I am sharing an MDF heart from Creative Expressions that I purchased in my local crafting shop, Keep on Crafting, Bury St Edmunds, which I painted with white gesso.

I took a piece of Kirstie Allsopp charm pack fabric (this is the first piece I have used, it's just so pretty I didn't want to cut into it) which I have cut into squares using pinking shears and layered up in a decopatch fashion.

The die cuts are made using Noor! Design dies and Anna Marie Designs cardstock which I have highlighted with white gesso.

Using a blob (technical term) of Pinflair glue I arranged the pins (from my stash) and the stamens, flowers and mixed flower buds (from Anna Marie Designs).

The image is from Lunagirl Moonbeams (who is our Sisters of Craft sponsor this month) which I have glued into a beer bottle top and covered with an epoxy sticker from my stash.

I have added a strip of cotton lace trim also from Anna Marie Designs and finished the edges of the heart with more white gesso.

I would like to enter this in to the following challenge(s);
