MC Jan/12 - Cone Flowers - Love

Sorry that it's been a while since my last post, have been busy at work - tax time...

Today's card is another "Love" card, using a new petal shape for my cones. Usually I just fold my sides of the circle over once, but this time I used a scalloped circle and folded them back to create a little ruffle in the petal. Will do this again, love the look.

It's also the first time I've ever made a frame around a punched out tag.

I'm using a quote from  Quietfire Design, lots of charms, glitz, lace, ribbon, and layers. Anyway to see more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy.
