It's finally starting to look like Spring around here, and I was inspired to make a layout with some photos I took in Carmel last year, lots of green and beautiful gardens, love visiting this beautiful little town.  Since my photos are of gardens and flowers, I though what better stamps and dies to use than Heartfelt Creations.  My color inspiration came from the middle photo the different shades  of green and the red flowers.  
These flowers are made with the "Daisy Patch Flowers" and "Elegant Single Leaves" stamp and die sets.  The base image is from "Daisy Patch Swirls" stamp set.
I applied some red mini adhesive rhinestones from Want2Scrap to the dotted swirls on this image.
For the frames I used the "Decorative Oval Window" die, love the shape of this die, you can use it as a window or as a frame like I did here, all I had to do is cut the cross-section out with scissors.

Stamp "Stained Glass Background" all over green patterned paper with peeled paint distress ink, I made it look distressed by removing some ink from the stamp with a sponge before I stamped the image.  Stamp images from "Daisy Patch Swirls" as pictured with Brilliance Ivy ink, color the flowers with Color Box cranberry ink and the leaves with distress ink.  Stamp 8 of the smallest flowers and 6 of the next size up from "Daisy Patch Flowers" set on red cardstock with pigment ink and heat emboss with bridal embossing powder, cut with coordinating dies.  Stamp 26 of the smallest leaf from "Elegant Single Leaves" set on green patterned paper with brilliance ink and cut with coordinating die.  Make 2 borders from green patterned paper using the border die from "Decorative Butterfly-Border" die set, ink edges with distress ink.  Cut 3 frames with the "Decorative Oval Window" die and emboss on dark green cardstock, cut out the cross section with scissors, apply some Inka Gold paint to the embossed areas.  Place your Oval Window die on your photo and trace the outside edge, cut with scissors, adhere the frame to the photo with pop dots.  Adhere everything as pictured, add some lace, and adhesive rhinestones to the dots in the stamped images.  I also added some white Gala Glitz to the center of the flowers.
