Book, Bath And Bed!

Ages ago I dropped the book I was reading in the bath, I'm sure I'm not the only person to have ever done this but you know what us crafters are like, we can't throw anything. Luckily the quick dunk it received didn't ruin it completely, it just fell into sections and only the cover and a few pages from the front and back had to be disposed of. I've used some pages before to make flowers from and cut the odd word from it to add to collaged cards.

Anyway, this week's theme at Less is More had me flicking through what was left and finding suitable words to punch hearts from. The fragile pages needed to be stuck to copy paper to be strong enough not to get stuck in the punch.
Here's what I came up with.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
LIM178, Recycle.

Thanks for stopping by,
