This also fits this month's Dirty Dozen Central Theme:CT0413- *Hope Floats*. My interpretation is that everyone needs LOVE to make *Hope FLOAT*... wouldn't you agree? :
How-to: Cut lovely 12x12 DP in half and fold to make a 6x6 card base. I chose this "Love Letters" DP for the large sparkly letters that I wanted to use as my sentiment. Now take tattered blossoms stamps, add burgundy ink and stamp multiple times all over on this cut base panel (it will become your background). Next, Cut Black Textured CS down to be slightly larger then DP base and glue to together. Now Die-cut all the Flowers and the multiple Scalloped Borders out of the same DP and black textured CS leftovers. Add scalloped border to top section with foam tape -this adds dimension and will make your flower stand out in center as focal-point. Using a stylus, curl back each petal of your cut flowers, add glue to centers and stack these from largest to smallest to create a lg single dimensional flower for center and a tiny one for bottom to balance the card out. Adhere metal bling embellishment to center with lg glue dot. Add rhinestone centers to both flowers. Now sponge card base edges with matching burgundy ink. Lastly, add the adhesive flourish bling starting from the flower and going outward towards edges in different directions. Doesn't it look like a vintage jazzed-up collage? :)
TFL & Happy Creating!

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
