PP284 You're So Lovely


Hi friends, and a happy Sunday to you! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. Today at The Paper Players the wonderful Claire is our hostess, and she has a great sketch for us to play along with. 


I have a new floral stamp set from Hero Arts that was waiting to be inked up, so I used flowers for the circle element and went from there. I stamped and die cut all the floral elements. The berry branches were first heat embossed with gold embossing powder. My background was made with a Heidi Swapp stencil and a sponge dauber. I am crazy about enamel dots, but especially the ones I used today as they are gold and sparkly :)



I fell in love with the fabulous inspiration photo at Fusion, and used the colors, florals and mosaic elements. I'm also playing along with the Fabulous Flowers Challenge at Hero Arts.
