SOUS Challenge

I made this layout from the SOUS sketch. I had the best time learning how to make the flowers. I now have a drawer full for when I want to use them. When I showed this one to my hubby he actually got excited about it and how much he liked it. I hope all of you like it too.

The printed paper is from American Crafts a la carte minstrone

The circles paper is by cloud 9 and it is chocolate chalet

The solids are from my stash

I made the flowers using accent essential

The leaves are from Stretch your imagination

The flourishes are from make the cut I used kraft color paper and then inked it

The butterflies are from story book

I used my cuttlebug to emboss the butterflies with the swiss dots folder

The fairy and the font are from Tinkerbell and Friends cart

This layout also qualifies for:
