Hi, welcome to my 'happy place'....

 This is a 7" square white card base with a smaller panel of black cardstock then a smaller panel of the designer paper

I distressed all four edges and made a few tears into the paper.  Before I adhered it to the black card I added a little 'tea dye' distress ink around all the borders

Once adhered to the black cardstock I used a die, off centre as shown, then adhered this to the base card

I paper pieced the small black triangular pieces in place as well as adhering the black circular piece back into the centre

 White lace was glued into place on the two larger tears

The flowers and leaves are die cut in kraft card and I used 2 different distress inks on the edges but added more colour on the leaves.  I also sprayed the floral arrangement with 'spray & sparkle' in silver

 The sentiment was attached at a 'jaunty' angle and a smaller flower glued to one end

 I added mats and layers of the same card and paper to the inside of the card

Then die cut 2 white ovals and adhered them as shown

I will add a verse when I know who I'll be sending the card to.  The top white panel is ideal to add a personal message if needed
