IHP Bella Bella Flowers

All I could say when my box of goodies arrived from i {heart} papers was, 'oh gosh! oh golly! Oh golly gosh!' I can't even begin to tell you how much I love what I got! I'll show you more in the weeks to come - way more! Oh Gosh!!!!!

I used BellaBella French Flea Market designer paper by My Mind's Eye. I can't even begin to tell you how much I think this paper is TOTALLY FABULOUS!!!! It is elegant and classy with just the right amount of edge! {insert contented sigh} The biggest problem I have with it is there is only one sheet of each design. It's the same problem I have with the Basic Grey packs as well. I'm such a spoiled brat whiner!

The image is from Our Craft Lounge called Flowers for You. What a totally darling set. On the advice of my DD, I almost didn't get it or a couple of the other sets I finally chose. {insert me sticking my tongue out at her!} The very first thing I did with this set was make masks of the 2 bows that come with it. I can see them multitasking in so many ways. I coloured the image with copics. I then doodled over some of the image with a glue pen and added some glitter to jazz it up a bit and make it a bit more glam vintage.

I used my Creative Memories wavy cutter for the curvy edge. I think next time, I will use a straight edge and layer it with a pretty edge punch instead. I like it, but it gets a bit lost and loses its impact here. Overall though, this one's a fave!
