Chipboard Gate Album

Today I have a mini album I want to share with you, I used the chipboard "Gate Album" from Want2Scrap, I painted it with a metallic white pearl paint but for some reason it looks more silver than pearl.  Once I painted all the pages, I added some paper from K & Co., for the paper I distressed all the edges and added some distress ink.  The fun part was adding all my embellishments and making sure that the pages would open while keeping the design of the bling swirls across the gate pages.
The flowers I made with a couple of stamps from the "Daisy Patch Flowers" set and coordinating dies from Heartfelt Creations, I also used the smallest leaf image and coordinating die from "Open Falling Leaves" set, I wanted the flowers with lots of dimension so I ended up doing a lot of dry embossing on the petals to give them that shape.
For the little journaling tags I used a couple of Spellbinder dies and some stamps from Prima, also added some gorgeous baby blue trim from Want2Scrap.
And look at all that bling, isn't it pretty, all the adhesive rhinestones are also from Want2Scrap, perfect addition to my album.  
The little butterflies and chipboard embellishments are also from Want2Scrap, I painted the chipboard with mint metallic paint and added a couple of adhesive rhinestones.
