Score & fold the dark blue cardstock to make a 5"w x 7"h side folded card.

Ink up embossing folder on the high points with Worn Lipstick, carefully place white cardstock down and close folder, run through embossing machine and clear emboss. Trim piece down to size to have about a 1/4" border all around card. Lay a piece of netting on the diagonal, wrap towards back and adhere in place with double sided tape. Layer on to card.

Die cut 3 sequential ovals, smallest from white cardstock, then dark blue metallic, then medium toned blue Bazzil. Stamp the quote on the white one with blue stamp pad, clear emboss. Sponge some Broken china around the edges. Layer all 3 on top of each other, centering them.

Die cut a scalloped oval to fit the previous largest die cut oval. Adhere to oval layers, off setting it so the scallops peek out more on the right.

Stamp the smaller flourished heart with a pigment ink and emboss with Detail White 10 times on the backside of the red cardstock. Cut around each, leaving a small red border around stamping. Adhere to oval/scallop assembly, tucking the first and last heart deeper behind ovals, and spacing them evenly. Adhere this assembly to card.

Punch out a 2 pattern piece of the flower trim in a pretty floral color, then do the same with a greenish tone. Cut the flowers off on the green piece. Adhere this piece to the floral colored punch out, matching all edges. Cut some of the petals away from the vine trim, so the sprig can be shaped to the contour of the ovals. Adhere to ovals.

Final touch, add small red rhinestones to centers of flowers and small silvery/blue half pearls in the scallops.
