All Grown Up Layout {Purple Pumpkin/Riddersholm Design/Imaginarium Design}

Hi everyone!  This layout has just gone live at 
Purple Pumpkin HERE today!!

I used up the last of my Riddersholm papers from my 
C'est Magnifique Guest Designer stint a few months back.
I mixed my Purple Pumpkin product with Imaginarium Designs
chipboard & cut that awesome chippie butterfly right down the
middle and popped him on opposite corners of my photograph!
I layered up tonnes of Purple Pumpkin loveliness - 
fabric button (polka dots) plus doilies & crochet lace too.
My title and cogs also come from Imaginarium Designs
and my stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.
I did all sorts of things to that chipboard :)  I painted it
first with black, then again with crackle-paint & lastly 
went over it with ink & distress stain in random places. 
I used up the negative sheet from the cogs as a rectangular
mat behind my photograph, together with one of the
 Imaginarium Designs fancy filigree corners.
Layers are key to achieving this look!
I tucked in a little piece of Imaginarium Design picket fencing too.
The paisley button on the left is from Purple Pumpkin available HERE.
as my starting point.
