Playin with the Queen of Hearts--a few challenges.

I must tell you first off that this isn't my first project I made.  The first one is in shreds on the floor.  Yeah, like that.

Haunted Design House asks for us to use a heart, and a hole in our projects.  I immediately knew what I was gonna do-so I thought.  Got my images colored, then the battle started.  After much, much deliberation I threw together a turd.  Thank the Gods my camera battery was dead, or else I wouldn't have had time to tear apart the turd, regroup, get my mind right, and create this masterpiece--



I found this Queen of Hearts image cruising Creepy G's blog a while back.  It's from Spesch Stamps, and they have this amazing line of dead Wonderland characters.  I had to use her!  I am very proud of how I colored her.  Aside from using the hearts adorning Her Deadness as my heart, I decided to go literal, and use a sketch of an actual human heart.  How's THAT for meeting a challenge? 

But wait!  Where is the hole, you ask?  Look very closely...it's right there in the heart!  I suppose I could use the holes punched on the edge of the bg paper, but I decided to cut hole in my paper heart anyway.  I find it utterly cool.

Since this card fits many challenges, I'm gonna throw her into a couple more. I'd like to enter her in Simon Says Stamp and Show(Kings and Queens), and The Altered Alice hearts challenge.  How could I resist?
