flower petal valentine pattern

Cut flower petal front from one color (I used white) and base card from another color (I used red).  Cut sentiment frames if you wish.

Each petal consists of three parts: an small solid heart and two larger heart frames.  Bend up the solid heart and the outer-most heart frame.  Leave the medium-sized heart frame flat.
