The inspiration for this layout is those beautiful Love Letters papers by My Little Yellow Bicycle & of course this wonderful photo of my son & his new bride! This photo was taken by a groomsman. He took some wonderful pics! We are lucky to have his great photos in addition to the professional work!! The layout was made with the February kit for My Creative Scrapbook & was for the sketch challenge designed by Julie Bonner.
I punched a 3" strip of card stock on both sides with a Fiskars threading water punch to make the large black paper layer. A decorative strip cut with my Sizzix Big Shot from red card stock & was adhered on top. I scattered small paper flowers lightly distressed with fired brick Distress Ink on the decorative flourish & added red jewels as flower centers. These flowers were found in the bridal aisle in a tin, & are made for "table confetti". Check those bridal aisles ladies...lots of good finds!!!
I placed a punched border strip of red card stock. I added some Clear Cuts flourishes & some Love Letters journaling to the photo. Both of these are made by My Little Yellow Bicycle. The mat for the photo was originally a large "shield" paper that I cut to fit as a mat for the photo.

The larger flowers are made with various punches and dies. The layers are punched from printed papers & card stock used in layout. I have used 1 red, 1 black & 1 white Prima paper flower as a base. I added clear jewels for the centers. The title lettering is from Basic Grey Wilma & were inked with Distress Black Soot ink.

This was a fun layout to do! I hope you are not tiring of wedding layouts!! I am doing them as the mood real plan!!!

Thanks so much for taking a look! I appreciate it!!
