1. Create a 5" x 7" card from Willow Muslin cardstock. Cut a large oval from Pink Ice Parchment, using the Oval Regalia cutting die. Stamp "Friendly Little Note" on the front, using Hunter Green ink.
2. Use the Tudor Rose Collection cutting dies to make 5 sets of leaves from Asparagus Velvet Paper and 5 flowers from Salmon Velvet Paper. Highlight petal edges with the Cherry marker. Layer the flowers and leaves together and set aside.
3. Assemble the card by layering 2 Heart Doilies on the card face, positioning them in the approximate spots where the flowers will be attached. The points of the hearts can be trimmed off, and one of the hearts will need to be split so that the humps can be overlapped. Layer the oval die cut on top and add the flowers, gluing the smaller ones in place and using pop-up dots to attach the 3 larger flowers.

4. Complete the card with a bow made from pink and white Jute. Then add drops of Gold Pearl Pen.
