Memories of Glor {Layout} Creative Scrappers Contest - Prima

I decided to join in with the Creative Scrappers Contest over
 the weekend and have a little creative play with this sketch .
The randomly drawn prize is a year's subscription to Scrapbooks
and Cards Today from Canada, and as I've never seen/read
 one I was motivated to enter!

I recently got hold of some of the new Prima Songbird 
collection and wanted to try it out.  I love the unobtrusive
design & gentle colours.  Just my type of paper line.

I fussy-cut the little birdie on a branch - inked it up 
& raised it up slightly then enjoyed clustering various 
different Prima textural embellishments from many 
of their different collections over the years.

I love their new metal embellishments (the gate & the 
oval frame) both pictured above.  So intricate!!

I inked up the edges subtly, raising them slightly with some
 foam tape, and added a bit of punch-work along the edges
 of the layer beneath.

Every single item on this page is from Prima.
Apart from the inks, punch & adhesives!
Actually I've recently received some Prima
{Ingvild Bolme} inks and they are lovely!!
