Sweet Love Layout {Creative Scrappers Sketch 206} Les Papiers de Pandore





Hello there!  Happy Sunday!!!  There's a new sketch up at
Creative Scrappers today HERE & this is it!
I used the beautiful new Invitation papers from
 Les Papiers de Pandore for this one.  
You can view these stunning papers
for sale direct to YOU HERE.
I love the look of a white/pale/plain base
to emphasize fussy-cut details & stenciling.
I chose an eclectic assortment of metal
embellishments to compliment the papers.
The word 'Love' you see is a stamp that is available
from Pandore as part of the Invitation collection.
I hand-stitched the red border in keeping with
the sketch & stenciled, misted & splattered the base.
These papers have some great fussy-cutting potential as you can see.
The masks are some old Heidi Swapp ones I rediscovered when clearing out my studio cupboards :)

Stunning, I can see the changing season reflected in your colour choices. Or is it that the rain is impacting your mood so you're choosing happy and bright colours to counteract that?
Either way - it's totally working.
