Vintage Ticking Fabric Heart with Silk Ribbon

This 8" heart is heading towards its new home in New Jersey.
Using vintage ticking cotton fabric for the heart, the center image , one of my  RibbonSmyth vintage images is fused to the center of the fabric. Our fusible images are available in our Etsy store. I added one of my floral Mother of Pearl buttons and surrounded the little image with yellow 7mm silk ribbon stitches and small metallic beads,  then finished with 3 small shell buttons. This piece will now be with 4 other hearts. I send a heart annually, to a friend, to honor the passing of her husband.
