I drew my inspiration from the beautiful peony blossoms! I'm sure that I can smell their distinctive fragrance! Notice how the petals 'nest' together in soft curving lines.
I used my Silhouette to create a curve that I liked. The 'swooshes' are three layers thick and create some nice dimension in real life. The sentiment (which took me a kazillion tries before I got the 'curve' to match) is also done with the Silhouette using Glitter Pens.
Perhaps this photo will be just what you need to inspire you to get busy on your Valentine Day cards. Or perhaps it will take you in a completely different direction! We would love to have you share your talent with us at the card concept challenge :)
