Floral Tones

Evening all, been a while! School is mad, we are just at the ned of exam season and are counting down to the Summer break at the end of July...

Anyway, back to scrapbooking...

This week I have been inspired by the Crafting Time (http://itscraftingtime.blogspot.co.uk/) DT challenge theme 'Flowers', and the Color-me-scrappy (http://color-me-scrappy.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/challenge-6.html) colour theme of 'flora tones', a lovely range of blues and pinks.



The bright pink backing paper is a lightly textured bazzil cardstock. The flowery backing paper is from Chatter Box 'Powder Blossoms' and is cut with a wavy edge using my trimmer.
The dark red matte is a left over from my photography A level a couple of years ago (Bazzil basics).
The blue matte at the bottom left is Coredinations Tim Holtz 'Faded Jeans'. It has been embossed with Crafts-Too dotty folder.
The pale blue matte (stolen from the DT box!) has been cut at the bottom into a curve and trimmed with wide blue lace (also stolen from the DT box...), stuck on with ultra sticky red tape.

The flowers are a mixture from 'Itty Bitty Blossoms' and 'Layered Flowers' dies; and 'Got Flowers' from my stash. The leaves came with the Bitty Blossoms.
Each flower has a sticky back gem in the centre. 
The final elements are the sentiment and the swirls. These are from Crate Paper 'Blue Hill Collection Impression Diecuts'.

Oh, yes, and the picture is of my little sisters wedding, nearly 5 years ago now!
