Instructions: The green framed patterned paper is the background. Cut a strip of the light blue patterned paper that is 6.75" wide. Cut 2 strips of white cardstock that are 1" x 12". Find and cut out both of the pink border strips. Adhere these layers down the middle of the layout. Find and cut out the 6" x 6" green patterned frame, and adhere near the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of the light patterned paper that is 5" x 10". Tear the bottom edge of this piece on a diagonal, and distress the long edges. Adhere down the middle of the layout from the top using 3D foam tape. Add a strip of pink patterned paper that is 1" x 5" and adhere to the top of the layout. Add a piece of the fussy cut border strip just below the pink patterned paper. Cut a strip of the pink patterned paper that is 1" x 3.5", flag one end and adhere to the top left hand corner. Find and cut out the framed mini journal block, and adhere in the top left hand corner.

Stamp and die cut 4 of the Flowering Dogwood Frame. Stamp and die cut 1 set of the large flowers, and 1 set of the smaller flowers (6). I added colour to the wood part of the frames using dual brush markers. I added colour to the flowers and leaves on the frames using my blender pen and inks. I added colour to the larger flowers and leaves using inks and daubers. I fussy cut out all of the larger flowers on 2 of the frames. I shaped and added these to the remaining 2 frames for dimension. I cut the plain wood bottoms off of both of the frames and created 1 larger frame. I used fussy cut flowers to cover the seam of where the pieces meet in the middle.

I adhered the frame straight to the photo. Adhere to the middle of the layout using 3D foam tape.

Shape and adhere the larger flowers and leaves to the bottom middle portion of the layout, and add one flower to the top let hand corner of the layout. Using liquid adhesive I added beads to the middle of each of the larger flowers.

Add buttons to the top of the layout. Add buttons and pearls around the flower cluster and to the top left hand corner of the layout.
