Rose Heart Brooch

Tonight I thought it would be nice to make another brooch for My Etsy Shop since I finished all my Christmas projects! I'm going to be making a few more too, are there any requests for colors? My natural tendency is for the pinks!
I made it by drawing a heart and filling in the shape with alternating darker/lighter pink 4mm silk ribbon sweetheart roses. Then I added 2mm silk ribbon leaves in ribbon stitch. I used Dupioni Silk overlaid with Lace for the background. The colors seem a big strong in the photo, they really are a bit softer, funny how the camera does that!
