A Perfect Day - Forever LO - The Scrapbook Store

 ...and another LO featuring Classic Elegance papers from Melissa Frances, for The Scrapbook Store.  The paper elements were cut using the Silhouette Cameo, and the background was created using texture paste, and the Flourish Prima Stencil.  Edges have been embossed using the Stampendous, Aged Ivory embossing powder.

The photograph is of my Uncle Malcom and Aunt Pam on their wedding day.
 The title was created using The Scrapbook Store's own chipboard line - Scrap Words, in Burnt Cream.  Prima flowers, Peetaloo, velvet Hydrangeas and leaves, along with Green Tara, Heirloom Blooms flowers.... and some printable butterflies, to decorate.
....and, added in some extra visual elements using Kaisercrafts, Grid Stamp.
 Happy Creating
Sandie

Materials:
Melissa Frances - Classic Elegance Paper Collection, - Bits of Paper, and Strictly Business

Sandra, often I search the internet through google (have done so for years now) for free printable butterfly images. You have to be really careful and make sure they are royalty free for copyright reasons ....x
