1. I first painted my frame using burnt umber. Placing my paper on the inside of the plaque, I then added some large twill ribbon and mini blue rickrack.
2. I took two 3 1/2" dollies and inked the top of them with my Chestnut Roan ink. Once they were dry, I glued 1 doily to the lower inside left corner, 1/2 of a doily to the top right of the curve, and 1/4 doily to the lower right inside corner of my plaque.
3. My letters are the GCD Big Alphabet that I covered with the Frances patterned paper and inked using Chestnut Roan ink.
4. The flowers are from Prima and Stringing Heart Flowers along with some that I made.
1. Use a 3 1/2" circle punch for large flowers. You can use any size circle punch, just remember the smaller the circle the smaller the flower.
2. Starting on the outside of the circle, cut with your scissors to form a spiral.
3. Take your tweezers and begin rolling the spiral. As you roll, occasionally put a small amount of glue to hold it in place.
4. When it is completely rolled, glue onto a small circle.
5. Once glue is dry, add your flowers to the plaque along with a little bling
