You're So Special

I'm so excited to share my first official project for this term of the  Heartfelt Creations Design Team!  Not too long ago, HC introduced a new line of paper, and if you haven't used it yet, you are going to love it.  It's a very nice weight, and very smooth - just perfect for making flowers.
So let's get started!  This is a 6 x6 card.  Stamp the Delicate Asters and Butterflies stamp in embossing ink, emboss with gold powder. Cut the image using Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles. Die cut one large Labels 21 from the patterned paper, ink the edges.  Trace around the outside of this die onto reflective gold paper and hand trim. Cut two of the large semi-circles from the Layered Scalloped Posy die - glue beneath the curves of the Label 21.  Add pearls to the flower centers. Stamp 3 each of the two smallest flowers in the Delicate Asters set and cut with the coresponding die. Shape using the tool kit and assemble adding 3 layers of the flower centers in the middle.  Finish with a pearl. Stamp and cut two leaves from the same set.  Position the flower and leaves over the same image from the gold embossed layer. Stamp the sentiment and cut with Ribbon Banners. Shape the banner so that it curves up in the center - adhere with Zip Dry. Add ribbons and pearls to finish.
