When the inks were dry I added my patterned paper layers and the photo. I then stamped the two large black flowers and fussy cut it from the card stock I stamped on.
I added some stitching to my background for added texture. I then heat embossed some chipboard leaves with silver and added the two flowers and the leaves diagonally across from each other.
Finally, I added my title and little silver puffy hearts. I found it needed a bit more black for contrast and stamped tiny black hearts randomly around the page. I finished it off with black Nuvo Crystal Drops.
