Open Quilling Heart

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to post a quick picture of the final heart that was shipped off to Ramona.  Since the theme colors were red, white, and blue I stayed true to the colors when mounting the heart. 

The back sheet is red, a Martha Stewart punch created the border and a white ink pad was run along the sides.

What I loved about her post was the poem she included by Alexander Pushkin in 1825.  The poem is quite beautiful and I wanted to share it here with you as well (thanks Ramona). Apparently there are two English translations of the poem available - this version was translated by M. Kneller.

If By Life You Were Deceived...
by Alexander Pushkin (1825)

If by life you were deceived,
Don't be dismal, don't be wild!
In the day of grief, be mild
Merry days will come, believe.

Heart is living in tomorrow;
Present is dejected here;
In a moment, passes sorrow;
That which passes will be dear.

Antonella :-)
