Thank You for Being My Friend

This card was designed for a friend a work, she is always so thoughtful and so I thought I would give her this card to let her know how much her friendship means to me.

Card Recipe
Size 5 1/2 x 4 1/4

Base: Black Cardstock
Designer Paper: 4 x 2
Red Cardstock: 4 x 3 2/16 & 5 Scallop Circles for Flower
White Cardstock: 3 14/16 x 2 14/16
Sentiment:
Black Cardstock: 4 1/4 x 1 2/16
White Cardstock: 4 x 1
Stamps: Penny Black-Sweet Smiles
             Hero Arts-Thank You (CL351)
Stickles: Christmas Red
Punch: Stampin'UP!-Scallop Circle 1 3/4
Brad-1 Red
Ribbon

To make the Flower you will need to punch out 5-6 Scallop Circles
Place one on top of each other, and make a whole large enough in the middle so a brad can fit.
Place several together and cut slit after every two scallops (it will look like a heart) you will need to cut far enough down to allow you to bend the heart in half to form a petal.
Once you have made your petals on each of the scallop circles, layer them on top of each other and secure with a brad.  You may need to scrunch your petals to give it a more realistic look.  The more you work with the petals the better it looks.

Oh wow this is beautiful. My husband says I send people cards because they are breathing (meaning a lot of times for no reason.) I'm so happy to see someone else recognizing people and using their talent! You have a lucky coworker:)
