Key to my heart

I had a key hanger that had a cross stitch "Home is where the Army sends you" in a frame. Well it has been a long time since the Army sent me anywhere so I thought it time to update it. (I wasn't in the army; my husband was). Here is a picture of the frame/hanger - a bit blurry but you get the idea.

My heart is in need of some new keys so I made this picture. If I ever get time to cross stitching I may make something more permanent but I like the results for this. Here is a close up of Tilda and her keys.
All is colored with copics. The lace at the bottom of the dress has frosted lace stickles. Added dome flowers and sparkly candy dots in each corner. The keys a die cut from poppy stamps. The bow is some fiber from a basic grey collection. 
Hope you enjoy.

I love how you "updated" this, I think Tilda looks perfect there holding the heart around the keys - home is where the heart is! Great job on this :)

What a great way to re-make the key holder. I really like how you colored Tilda and put the yellow highlights around her. She's 'glowing' :-)
