The theme for this challenge is

Here is my DT inspiration for you....hope it will help with some ideas.

I cut a white base card measuring 5.5 x 6ins.
I chose some patterned papers from STUDIO75 for the mats.
I cut two contrasting pieces of card for the mats.
One piece slightly smaller than the base card and the other slightly smaller than the first.

Then I cut a FLOURISH HEART using a die from APPLE BLOSSOM. 
It is quite an intricate die but it cut beautifully! I cut this in a very pale lemon cardstock just to give a hint of a contrast colour. I placed this on the card front in the centre.

In the bottom right corner I placed some small white paper flowers and branches.
In the bottom left corner I placed a bow made from some wide silk ribbon in a beige colour.
It has a lovely sheen to it!

Finally in the top left corner I placed a die cut sentiment. I placed this with sticky pads to give it depth.

Plain and simple but very pretty.
I hope you like what I did and will gain some inspiration from it and enter our challenge.
