After seeing so many beautiful floral branches on layouts I decided to try to make one...I am very pleased with the outcome and how wonderful to be able to match my papers. Watch for a tutorial on Stuck On U Sketches....I will let you now when it is posted. I sewed my circle frame (cut from Lyrical Letters) on my machine, I love the little touch of color the pink thread added. I added pearl paint to the scalloped mat (cut from A Child's Year) and title (Winter Woodlands font)....a fav of mine lately.
Each of the flowers were handmade with cricut cuts...two of them are Plantin hearts and the other is Graphically speaking. I love these big gold buttons, picked up at my local WM in a variety bag for very little money. The mat underneath is cut by welding a Storybook border in DS....it really makes lovely intricate cuts. The corners are also a Storybook cut.
My lace is once again a WM find...in the bridal aisle...I added some adhesive pearls...The Indie Art butterfly has lots of stickles and bling. Sharon Barrett (a dear mb friend) commented that she thought the fence was my signature and I have to admit I love to use it. This one is cut from My Community, I stretched it in DS, it is embossed with my Cuttlebug and look how sweet the little Storybook hinges look on it!
There is a tutorial for the flower on the right already posted on Stuck On U Sketches. The large pink flower is my take on the rose tutorial I found at swirlydoos, I used cardsock. All of my leaves were cut from A Child's Year...chalked and stickled. The background paper is from the DC WV sweetheart stack, all else is just card stock. The mini K&Co frame holds a quote by Thoreau..."Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each others eye's for an instant?" I loved using my cricut and bargain center finds to create this page....I hope you will hop over to Creative Twist to see what the other DT members came up with. Christina is also participating in a blog hop until the 3Oth....join in the fun!
