happily ever after

happy thursday:) i happened upon a  new challenge blog  cooking it up with kate today being her debut. so i thought id play along . so good luck to her on her adventure :)
the first challenge is a 1~2~3 recipe theme..
1 image
2 different shapes
and 3 paper embellies
so my image is the heart . the swirly part is actually "supposed" to layer over the base image creating one heart  but i like the effectivness of the swirl  layer embracing the base , thus creating 2 hearts one protecting the other.   yeah yeah i know im pathetically cheesy arent i ;)
my 2 paper shapes are the circle and the rectangle panel
and the 3 paper embellies are the swirl on the panel, the corners and the word love.
i used my cricut and indie art (heart) jasmine (corners) and home decor (swirl on panel and love)  cartridges.
i used colorbox fluid chalk and the paper  is dcwv  once upon a time.
thanks so much for hanging with me a bit and i always appreciate the comments :)  have a great rest of day :) shelly
