I think I would start by picking out an area that you want to be your focal point -- maybe that rose in the center?  or maybe you want to do something fancy in that green space on the bottom? 

Then start with embellishing that part, maybe with beads or fancy stitches or something.

Then I'd move on to the seams, and I think I'd try to do things that somehow lead the eye to the focal point, like detached chain stitches that all point toward it, or something like that.

Are you familiar with http://www.inaminuteago.com/?  You'll find *tons* of inspiration there.

Thanks,,I think I will see if I have the ability to do any of those things...she sure is an inspiration, isn't she? I am just learning embroidery but I am familiar with detached chain..I think that is a good idea.

I would try stitching over all the seams, in the same color to tie it all together, maybe in red. If you use a cross stitch it could give the effect of a "mended" broken heart.
