We Love This

Happy New Year!!! It's hard to believe that another year has flown by. What the heck happened to 2017? It seems like I blinked and now it's 2018. Today, I have a colorful layout to share with you using an image I found on Pinterest as inspiration.

 
I was inspired to use lots of blues and pink on my layout! Oh, and I LOVE that butterfly pillow. GORGEOUS. I wonder if I can find that pillow somewhere. For the background of my layout, I sprayed white cardstock with light blue mist. Once it was dry, I used a stencil and a darker blue to create a fun Damask background.
 
 
I love ribbon! I used the green and blue ribbon to add a little funk to this layout. LOVE how it looks. I used a mini stapler to staple the ribbon on to the bottom of the card. I stapled one end, then pulled back the ribbon to cover the staple, stapled randomly a little to the left of the ribbon, then pulled the ribbon right and repeated the process again to create the ripples.
 
 
Here are a few close-ups. This layout is so pretty. Well, at least, I think so. It's so different from what I am used to creating... Every now and then, I like to mix it up a bit. I layered the felt flower with a purple flower from the September kit.
 
I didn't like how the end of the blue ribbon looked without the button. It looked too plain so I pulled a blue button from my stash and some pink ribbon and hand sew the button on to the ribbon. It turned out just how I saw it in my mind... Love when that happens.
 
I hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by.
