I can't take credit for this idea. I saw it on the exclusive Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website.  The gallery holds thousands of ideas and this was one idea I couldn't wait to R&D (rob and duplicate!)  Here are a few tips to making this card.  1) I drew a very light pencil line across the card to help align the letters when I stamped.  2) Stamp the "L" in the center first, then work your way out. This will help you keep it centered.  3) Using a sponge, gently swirl ink over the letter. Remember to use a LITTLE ink. You can always make it darker.  4) The top samples uses a flower punch to accessorize the words and the bottom sample uses the Dahlia.  5) I added a white gel pen 'dot' to the center of the punched flowers.
