Sunlight & Flowers

Hi there,


My hubby surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of roses & carnations!  How sweet!
Since he loves sweets so much, I made him a cake with my homemade cream cheese frosting, sprinkles and I wrote "Love you!" on it.  :)
Here's my bouquet.  I love roses!

 Ok, now for my layout which was submitted at Let's Get Sketchy for their February Week 2 Challenge.  This is the sketch:

And here's what I created:
Here's a few of my indoor plants... Christmas Cactus, African Violets and Aloe.  They're in a window with the best sunlight... and they really do so well here.

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Other
Perfect Pearls Mists: Mint
Gems: Stampin' Up!
Clear Sticker Title: Miss Elizabeth's
Love this cute sticker!

I had two sheets of the background paper so I did a bit of fussy cutting and adhered the leaves and flowers only partially so I could curl up the ends a bit so they were lifted off the page.  The cut outs were misted and clear gems were added on the large flower.

I matted the top strip and added three gems.  The banners were also curled just a little for some dimension.

Here's the other leaves I cut from the pp to add to my page.

 A better look at the dimension.  The background paper was also misted.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you'll pop back in!
