Heartfelt Creations Layout

Good morning and welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday.  For todays project I have a layout full of flowers, swirls and pretty diecut paper lace.  I used the "Lace Border" die to create the lace piece on the left of the layout.  Also used a couple of border punches for the photo mat and the strip of green patterned paper.
I used the "Bella Rose Leaves" stamp and the coordinating die from the "Bella Rose" die set, this stamp and die makes such delicate and pretty swirls with leaves.
For the butterflies I stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed with bridal embossing tinsel and shaded with rusty hinge distress ink.  The blue elegant post is part of the Spellbinders "Elegant Posts" die set, I used blue cardstock, covered with Distress crackle paint, once dry I applied some walnut stain distress ink.
I made all the flowers with the "Flora Grande" stamps and the Spellbinders "Blossom Three" coordinating dies.  For the small blue flowers I used the "Posy Patch" stamps and coordinating dies, I shaped all the flowers with embossing tools and added some stickles to the edge of the petals.
The background paper I created using several stamps and shades of green ink.
For my layout inspiration I used this sketch I found on The Color Room, this sketch was part of their challenge LO inspiration #33.  If you get a chance make sure to stop by the HFC blog and take a look at all the gorgeous projects the design team has created.  Thank you for stoping by and have a wonderful day.
