When I use a sketch as my inspiration, I basically look at the design elements
and decide to break down all the components...
Even though they have used lots of different coloured patterns, you don't
have create your layout exactly the same as the design.
It is just a guide, to follow NOT COPY!!

Sooo this layout I have kept it very simple...I have used the photos as my layering.
Limited stamping, BUT the focus is on the Sale-A-Bration FREE products.
Botanical Butterfly DSP and Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets.
AND Butterfly Due Punch and Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.
AS well as Designer Series Paper from Occasions Catalogue called Tropical Escape 6 x 6.

Look at the shimmer of these Foil Sheets

Whisper White 12x12 Cardstock with Black A4 Cardstock for the centre.
I cut 2 strips of Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets to add to the edge of the black.

I cut the foil with Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies to create frames.
I added a small piece of Botanical Butterfly DSP to behind the photos,
before sticking this to the black I cut away the butterflies
from the design to add to my page.
I used Blushing Bride Ink to stamp the sentiment from Strong and Beautiful


I did use carried over Black Foil Sheets from Holiday catalogue as other frames.
I fussy cut the flowers from Tropical Escape DSP to add to the layout.
Cut out the Congrats out of the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets (Sunshine Wishes Dies)
The date stamp has been stamped with Pick a Pennent Stamp Set and
Blushing Bride Classic Stamp Pad Ink.

I absolutely love the FREE products...
Botanical Butterfly DSP and Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets
is a FREE choice with each $90 you spend between Jan3 and Mar 31st.
