More of Stronger Love

I LOVE the sentiments of the Verve set  Stronger Love...the actual sentiments AND the fonts!!  Made a couple cards in different colors with two of the different sentiments... inspired by a Papyrus card I had in my picture file that had a heart made of flowers on it...
I used a Memory Box die Primula Bloom(call me crazy...I know...used only the second smallest flower) and a bunch of different colored pinks and reds...
I die cut the largest Papertrey ink heart die and adhered it onto the card and placed and adhered the flowers around the heart first(to make a perfectly shaped heart) and filled it in with the remaining flowers.  Dotted the centers of the flowers with liquid pearls.   Not sure how many flowers I used...OK...I know...a lot of flowers, I'm guessing about 30... but I just liked the thought of a heart made of flowers, it didn't take that long (cut long thin strips of paper so they fit the flower's width and could make a lot of them fast)and it was fun made me HAPPY!! While writing this post, I found another Memory Box die that would probably make the whole project go a bit faster...a little different flower, but more of them to die cut at one time...check out the Floral Delights die...EDIT***  Thanks, Pat for letting me know of yet another and way more efficient Memory Box die...Box Flower Mound  which cuts a BUNCH of flowers with ONE CUT!!!   SWEET!!!...if you're at all interested(they are both now on my list!).  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
