Simply the Best

Hi there,

I have a cute layout to share with you today that was submitted at Scrappy Sketches for their Mid Week Sketch 08-13.  I had such a fun time creating this page and the sketch is amazing too!  Here it is:

This is what I created:
Our daughter, relaxing after a long day at work.  Always looking spectacular!!

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Colorbok
Ink: A la mode Pink
Clear Embossing Powder
Gold Cording
Sizzix Leaf Die
Vellum Leaves
Embroidery Flowers
Paper Lace Doily
Cardstock Title: Autumn Leaves
Perfect Pearls Mists: Biscotti & Heirloom Gold
I added this cute embroidery flower which conveniently covered the end of the banner.

The tags were inked and covered with clear embossing powder to create this nice shine on the tags.  Ribbons was tied around each one. 

To make the banner I used a star stencil and picked one of the star points to trace onto the papers and folded the paper and cut it out.  It was then wrapped around the gold cording.
The cardstock title was inked along the edges.

 Here's the right side of my page.

 This is the larger tag I created.  I added various flowers, an embroidered flower and vellum leaves.  A paper doily was wrapped partially around the tag and misted.  The flowers and leaves were added in this semi-circle following the doily.

 Here's the bottom portion of my tag.

This is the top of the tag.  Love how these vellum leaves turned out.   

Here's a better look at the base of my tag.  I covered the tag with ribbon, wrapping the ends around the sides.  

Some of the misting on the doily shows up a bit better on this photo.

This is the bottom portion of my page.

Thanks for stopping by!
