 For this layout I used a sketch by my dear friend, Mistra.  She has an inspirational sketch blog called Sketches by Mistra.  Head on over to take a peek!  You will definitely see more of her sketches on my blog!
I love to make my own flowers.  Here I made the larger flower from cardstock using the Carnation Creations Dies by Spellbinders.  You can find the tutorial for my Simple Elegance flower HERE.  (I added double layers instead of the single layers shown in the tutorial.)
The smaller flower was made using the Bitty Blossoms Dies by Spellbinders.
These cute alphas come in the kit!
I painted and inked the mulberry flowers that came in the kit to coordinate with the color palette I chose.
... hand-stitching for added texture.
Adding punched borders is a simple way to add interest to your projects.
The gorgeous roses were hand-cut from the beautiful papers!  I adore this paper collection!

Be sure to grab your kit HERE so you can make some pretties!
