Zendala Dare #96 & Diva's Challenge #204

This week I've combined the Diva's Challenge #204, a Valentangle, and Zendala Dare #96. 
This is the first Zendala Dare in a long while. Welcome back, Erin (the Bright Owl).

This is Erin's template for the Zendala Dare:

And this is  what I originally did with it:
The use of the Heart tangles made me think that it would also work for the Diva's Challenge, which was to create a Valentangle. The only guidelines were  to get in the Valentine spirit; Use a heart string, use heart tangles, or use red, white and/or pink. I tried adding red or pink, but it just didn't work.
So I removed the black vignette around it, and Voila! 
This one works for the Diva's Challenge
 That's all I was able to do this week; I keep hoping to do more, but something always gets in the way. Two weeks ago I had laser surgery on my left eye; and, Hurray! it cleared up some of the visual problems I had been having. But then last week I tripped in the parking lot of a store which shall remain nameless. And while, luckily, I didn't break anything; I bruised my right arm and left leg, and got a few scrapes, to boot. While it didn't completely incapacitate me, it really knocked the wind out of my sails. And I still can't lift right my arm very high, and have very little strength in it. After a few days, it turned quite purple;
Of course, as a number of people have pointed out, Purple IS my color, so I shouldn't complain.

    1. You got that right. There are a few sayings about it: "Man plans; God laughs." Or; "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans." Glad you like my heart-dala.
