PaperPlay; Stampalot; Tuesday Morning Sketches; Shopping our Stash Weekly; Cropstop

Hi all!

I am entering my 8"x8" scrapbook page into the following challenges:

Stampalot February challenge had an "in the garden" theme. I used lots of floral paper, flower embellishments and a butterfly and a bird element.

Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge #134 provided the sketch for my layout.

Shopping our Stash Weekly challenge #40 showed us a photo as an inspiration which inspired me to add the butterfly element and also use the heavy floral patterned papers.

CropStop challenge #59 was to use at least three flowers. Apart from using lots of floral patterned paper, I also added three paper prima flowers and to the center of each of those I added a ribbon flower.

PaperPlay's challenge was to make something for a female relative. This page will be given to my mother for her to put a vintage photo of her mother on Mother's Day.

Here's my layout:


Here's a few close-ups:






supplies used:
stamps: Stampin' Up!- Always
ink: VersaMagic- Sahara Sand and Sea Breeze
card stock: Papertrey Ink- Fine Linen; Colorbok- textured black
patterned paper: Fancy Pants Designs- it's the little things collection
accessories: paper Prima flowers from stash; rolled ribbon roses from stash; dotted grosgrain ribbon from stash; butterfly embellishment from a free kit by Far Far hill found here; Fiskars corner rounder punch

Thanks for looking!
