Cherish The Memories

Hello ladies, I hope you have all had the time to get
as much crafting done as I have this last week or so. 
This LO I have done is for the Challenge at

Kaiser Crafts card stock was my base and I created from there. 
The patterned papers I used were Kaisers - Lady Rose collection.

On my back ground I used Mister Huey's Color mist -Pretty Pink
 and Mint Julep. Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber - Snow Cap and 
Mushroom. Acrylic Paint - Wine and also Tim Holtz Distress Stain
- Picket Fence, Spun Sugar, Rusty Hinge and Tattered Rose. Plus the
one thing I'm having a lot of fun with - Modelling Paste.

I punched out the tag, inked the edge with Tim Holtz Distress Ink -
Black Soot.The flourish is designed and created by Scraptopia. I 
painted it with Wine acrylic paint and placed a Snow Cap over it.
I then put Glossy Accents over the top to finish it off. The flowers
are Prima. 

The Prima flowers are just beautiful. The Memories rub-on is from
Kaisers - After Five Collection. The stencil I used is Mayer Road.
The Cherish the Memories chippie is another from Scraptopia. I 
colored it the same as the flourish. The beautiful big flower with the 
lovely gold center is from Couture creations Treasures Flowers, 
which are also very beautiful.

The beautiful cherub is a Prima Shabby Chic Resin. I ahve also 
string on the LO and some burgundy Abaca. 

I hope you like the LO and please hop on over to Once Upon A
... Sketch and join in the challenge. I know you will have as much 
fun as I did.
