Favorite Pair

Scrapbook Layout created for Clique Kits  -  Favorite Pair  -

Hello everyone!!

Happy NSD!!

Today is a day to celebrate all things paper and memory keeping;  at the same time Clique Kits is posting their monthly challenge to all followers,  this month's challenge is GOLD.   I couldn't be happier about it, as i love gold, and this month's kit -Sorbet-  features Pinkfresh Studio's Dream On collection which combines perfect with gold

This project started with a cut file from Handipaper (Inna Moreva's Etsy store).  I cut the wreath out from the Marvel paper, backed the leaves with vellum, and added some distress ink in Cracked pistachio to the vellum to bring out the mint color of the leaves.

I played around with the wreath, and ended up cutting it in half, and  gluing it to the paper leaving an empty space in between the two ends.  Here i positioned my title which was creating by using the alphas in the kit, and the beautiful die cut word "Favorite".  Since the die cut is rich in toner, i decided to foil it using my MInc and some champagne  foil.

To create the clusters of flowers around the wreath, i simply used a couple cut files from the Silhouette store, and the Delight paper from the kit.  To add some background to the flowers, I cut the outlines of the the flowers using cardstock to match the peach tone of the flowers.

The picture of my sister and mom is tucked  under one of the flower clusters.  To complete framing the picture, I simply added a few of the ephemera pieces, and some of this month's exclusives. In addition, I used quite a bit of gold color shine to add some splatters around the wreath.   Here is final layout:

I love this month's challenge, and as you can see I love this month' SORBET kit.   The papers are just so beautiful, and the exclusives are perfect for many  paper craft projects!!  Remember to visit Clique Kits to check all the details in the kit, and to see what their stocking in their store.

Take care!
