FTL 104 #2

I made this card back on the 20th along with the card you saw in my last post (hey, I have to stretch out my posts if I want to appear to be a regular blogger!! ;)  LOL), and after making that first card I had the desire to make the spot where the bow is in the sketch to be a torn paper flower. I've done them in the past with good success in making the flowers but not the best success at utilizing them on the card. I am pleased with how this one turned out. For once, I had to stop myself though. I was going to add some Dazzling Diamonds to all of the rough edges on the petals. I think it would have looked pretty, but maybe a bit much. I settled with just the bling (I LOVE THE SELF-ADHESIVE JEWELS THAT SU! HAS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) in the center of the flower. This card also uses the FTL 104 sketch, found HERE.

All items used are SU!

Stamps: Because I Care (Level 1 Hostess)
Paper: Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White CS, Greenhouse Gala DSP
