Stop and smell the roses by Anita Enright

Hi Everyone,

Anita here again with you on the blog today showcasing my first layout using thesoon to be released Ultimate Crafts  RAMBLING ROSE collection designed by the talented Sue Smyth.
I can honestly say that I love this entire collection but I totally fell for the patterned paper I used in this layout the beautiful white doily background with the yellow and pinky peach hues and the black outline of the roses. And I had the perfect photo for it too.

To start I took my patterned paper and tore approximately 5" strip from it and adhered it across the centre of my white cardstock base.  I used some washi from my stash and ran a strip along the bottom edge of my patterned paper.
Next I took a black and a matching yellow spray/spritz splattered some over the page, both the white cardstock and over the patterned paper.

 After matting my chosen photo on some white cardstock I cut a piece of other matching patterned paper slightly larger than my matted photo and inked the edges with black ink. I then adhered it to the layout.  I mounted my matted photo on some cardboard to add further dimension.

Now to embellish the layout.  I added a flower cluster to the bottom left of the photo using some of the Couture Creations white flowers along with some of the rose diecuts from the CARDMARKERS collection pack.  I also added two butterflies from the diecut sheet  and a small title to the layout.  

To finish the layout I added the gorgeous cream resin swallow and some of the grey and peach coloured pearls.


Thank you for stopping by.
And don't forget to keep the craft alive :)
