I had been admiring this beautiful paper by Graphic 45 for a while and over the weekend of the Stamping Retreat, Leigh bought one of the paper pads for me! Such a treasure! Then I decided I needed/wanted the 8 x 8 pad to go with it. This collection is called French Country and these sunflowers are such happy flowers that I had to use this image first!
I found that Stampin' Up! Early Espresso and the old retired Ruby Red colours went beautifully with the papers, I dyed some bright yellow seam binding with SU Crushed Curry ink and used SU buttons and the set Chalk Talk for the wording. As a suggestion from Leigh, I put a photo corner punched out of one of the papers to finish it off. The jury is still out as to whether this would be a male or female themed card. I guess more for a female because of the flowers as Leigh said too.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace from my stash, the wording is a Just Rite stamp and I just finished off with some SU pearls and a pearl brad on the bow from my stash!

The colours are off here - the rose is made from SU Pale Plum like the scalloped layer!! I am shocking at doing flower arrangements though as you can see LOL!! All fun! I have white embossed the metal corner piece with three coats of powder.
Card: SU Pale Plum [retired], Naturals White, Maja Design Sofeiro paper [ beautiful]!
Other: Spellbinders die for the rose, small roses come from Wild Orchid Crafts, Spellbinders frame die and scalloped die. Everything else is from my stash.

I made an 8 x 8 page using Island Indigo card for the base and then paper from the Twitterpated DSP pack. The leaves and scrolls are Stampin' Up! Dies, the little flower is a SU punch and the white border is made from a Martha Stewart punch.
Apart from most of my photos looking very big on these pages, I love the 8 by 8 pages as I can find so many card sketches to use as layouts. The banner is for the journalling when I decide what to put LOL!!

I used my new Stampin' Up! organza roses - they come out so pretty when dyed. They come as vanilla colour and I pressed them on to a Blushing Bride inkpad and then spritzed them to blend the colour.
Card: Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss [retired], Blushing Bride, Prima Tea-Thyme DSP

After I made the flower from Blushing Bride cardstock, I sponged around the edges with Regal Rose ink. It is most certainly not the best flower I have ever made!

Ink: Regal Rose and Black
Other: Martha Stewart lattice punch, Memory Box scroll die, Doo Hickey leaf die, lace and twine from my stash.
