I really wanted to pull the colors in the photo into the layout, so I started with the richest black card stock I could find. It was Bazzill's eclipse...it is really a rich dark black! I then started the process of picking out papers.. and the BasicGrey Boxer collection had these patterned papers! I cut two circles from these papers using my Fiskar's circle templates, added eyelets to the back one & was ready to start!
The flowers were made with my Big Shot using the same papers used in layout. I also used a retro punch for the smaller layer. All layers were distressed & edges were stickled with lime green. A brad was added to hold it all together & act as flower center! Small Maya road chip butterflies were added to fill those empty spaces!!
