Cardstock: White, and turquiose, scalloped Bazzill
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye - Our Princess Fresh Flowers, Cousins Little Blossom / Blue Polka Dot, All Star Starburst / Green Deco Paper, Basic Grey - 12x12 Paper: Ice Cream Parlor
Flowers: Prima Marketing
Alphas: American Crafts and Making Memories
Miscellaneous: A Hambly overlay, lace, no-name Prima-knock-off-leaves & ditto flowers (the pointy ones), bling, pearls, staples, brown ink.
This layout is made partly from the scraps after making the wine bottle container, partly from fresh, uncut papers.
The yellow piece and the darker spotted one, are both small scraps, there's nothing underneath the overlapping paper. ;)
(A great way to use that favourite paper more than once, by the way!)
I framed the photo with a Hambly overlay and stapled that down using black MM staples.
I've also used green staples (MM) to keep the lace in place.
I've layered the flowers (Prima and no-name Prima knockoffs) and created the blinged centers by simply gluing smaller gems around a big one.
Gives you a lot of say-to to how you want your center to look, when it comes to colour and shapes (for example - you can surround a clear bling or a pearl with red heart shaped blings on a Valentines LO or card for someone you love).
All the edges are toughed up with my edge scraper, and inked with brown ink.
