Wood U Be Mine

Hello Crafty Friends!
Hubby hasn't been around today since he has been helping our son build a table, so I have been keeping busy. Went to Hobby Lobby and Michaels this morning, finished a couple projects, took a few pictures and edited them, and now I am sharing.

Today's project...
I bought this Sizzix die at the Scrapbook Expo last year and had to put it away in the Valentine's box until now. It sure is a neat little die. I am glad I had some wood grain paper. 

I used the following sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

First, I used my hand held Tim Holtz tool for distressing the edges of the pattern paper. I then mounted the heart on foam squares for dimension, added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the "u", and adhered a bow to the tiny limb to match the buttons. Those oblong buttons were deep in my stash, but I thought they filled the space on the sketch nicely.
Other Challenges:

Hope you have a cozy night!
