Special Day *Heartfelt Creations*

Be sure to check even more new inspiration at Heartfelt Creations!

Eventually, Claudia is gonna ban me from her blog... I'll be so sad. Once again, I followed one of her layouts. One of these days, I'll be a big girl and I will figure out how to work flowers all by myself! Until then... I used papers by K and Company.

This cluster is made from Posy Patch flowers and Bella Rose leafy swirl. I cut a variety of sizes in coordinating colors. The trim is from Stampin' Up.

The sentiment, fence and butterfly are all part of the new Garden Romance collection.

I only stamped and cut the Bella Rose leafy swirl thing once. 
I like to cut it apart and arrange the pieces to fit my project.

I just love this new stamp! I love romantic, shabby-chic-cottage-scenery stuff. I usually blend Prismacolor pencils with odorless mineral spirits, but I really liked the rustic look of the pencil here. So, I left the image unblended.
