 Die Cut the Rose Flower several times out of Black Cardstock, Red CS and Green Cardstock. Ppaper pIece the Flower and leaf then readher. Layer flower with extra cuts for depth and add framing.  Die-cut the Hello word several times and adhere layers. Next Heat emboss the word beautiful with silver EP and die cut with the stitched flags dies. Adhere on bottom of frame. Make handmade bow and add a silver flower button to the center. Ive used a heat gun. Lastly, I sprayed silver shimmer mist to the whole design.

How-To Details
Layer your Herringbone die cuts twice. Add Vellum over this panel. Next die-cut, layer and adhere the Hello sentiment panel several times (this adds great dimension).  Then die-cut the Flags and the Friend word. Adhere as shown and place under the Hello Panel. Next Die-Cut the Australian BG twice and back it with blue cardstock around edges. Then adhere that edge over the BG to frame. Finally adhere to your card base. The finishing touches are silver flat-back gems and silver spray mist.
