Huge Blooms
This is a really simple design, set on a BG of swiss dots, that I ran through my cuttlebug folder.  Done in black and white, this bloom really struts its stuff!  Rather simply, but stately, don't you agree? I added just a touch of glitter to the center of the flower, for pizzaz, before I mounted it on a little bit of ribbon. The blast of red for the sentiment draws your eye to the top, so you will be sure to read it!
