Chevrons and flowers

I've had fun trying out lots of new ideas for this card.  I saw a fab new technique recently of cutting out a design from the front of a card and then putting another layer behind it (thanks Deepti!), this is my take on it - I drew out the scalloped square and the Zoe, then really carefully cut out all the bits with some super sharp pointy scissors.  I water coloured the frame then stamped lots of flowers all around.  The background is held on with some double sided foam pads to add some depth.  I punched holes inside the scallops and threaded some ribbon through to finish it all off.
