Instructions: I used both of the background pattern. I cut the decorative border off of each. Take the remaining pattern from one and adhere to a 12 x 12” piece of cardstock just for stability. Cut a piece of the striped patterned paper that is 7 x 12”, mat in white cardstock with the edges distressed and adhere across the middle of the layout. Cut out the green border strip and adhere to the bottom of the striped piece. Then add the fussy cut borders to either side using foam tape. Double mat the photo in white cardstock, with the edges distressed. Then adhere to the layout using foam tape.

When I create photos, I like to stamp at least 2 sets of each flower size in each color. That is what I did with these coral flowers. Stamp 2 sets of each size of flower and leaves onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using StazOn Ink (Timber Brown). Add color to the flowers using ink and daubers. The middle of each is Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber and the petals are Abandoned Coral. The leaves are colored using Peeled Paint. Die cut all, and shape using the coordinating Shaping Molds. Add color to the ladybug image using Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush (Carmine Red, Black). Add liquid adhesive to the ladybug to add dimension and shine. Let dry.

Assemble the flowers and add Prills to the middle of each. Let dry completely. Add clusters of flowers above and below the matted photo. Then add the leaves after. Final touch is to add the little ladybug and the sticker title.
