Hearts and Roses for Fred She Said

Hi everybody

Unfortunately because my computer was down and I was feeling pretty unwell, so this did not get blogged, but I want to amend that now.  Fred She Said  has some fabulous designs and I really enjoy working with them.  It was my turn last week to choose the Digi of the Week, and I chose the Hearts and Roses design.

This lovely pre-coloured set comes with a lovely scalloped heart but unfortunately but cutting out i not very good, so I resorted to Nesties.  This set is also available as a digi, and there are a range of colours in the pre-coloured set.  I printed the roses and then layered them up so they 'popped'.  My papers are also digis from Raspberry Road.  The tiny flowers over the piece are from a Woodwae punch, and I have used pearls to embellish them.  The side panel is a piece of lace over-laid with a piece of patterned paper which has been punched using the MS Doilly border, and then had some butterflies added to it.

I am entering this into the following challenges.
