Hi Veronica,
Thanks! I used photoshop and did it using layers - one layer for the center, another for the mat, and a third for the overlapping petals. Then I softened where the edges of the layers meet, and used the paint tool to paint in a shadow where the petals overlap the mat. It took a bit of time, but turned out nicely. I'm using this design for a series of note cards for our local convention/visitors center's giftshop.

Hi Jennifer,

This is lovely, but I think you might want to spell 'with' correctly before you go further? Your notecards will be lovely, I'm sure!

Thank you Sylvia. It's just the name of the file and won't be printed on the card, but I appreciate your pointing it out. Everyone needs an editor! :-)
