To create this card I started with a 5 x 5 navy blue card base.  I added a piece of coral card stock backed in white card stock.  I embossed a piece of dark peach card stock using a heart embossing folder and backed it in white and navy blue card stock.  I punched a strip of white card stock using a heart lace boarder punch and added a pied of navy blue sheer ribbon.  I layered a piece of peach dot ribbon to the navy blue ribbon.

The image I used is Sweet from The Paper Shelter. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and cut it out in an oval.  The I backed it in dark peach and navy blue card stock.  I used scallop scissors to cut around the image.  I colored a white paper flower using a cranberry Chromatix pen and added it to a larger white paper flower.  I added a brilliant blue pearl to the center and 3 more to the upper corner.
