It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

 
 
 
Lisa is our Host over at Just Us Girls this week
and has chosen this gorgeous photo below
for us to be inspired by... 
What caught my eye?
The first thing was the wallpaper in the background
so my first job was to find an embossing folder
and ink it up - Cuttlebug Stylized Flower
with SU Yo Yo Yellow
I couldn't help but then notice the flowers
in such a pretty pink colour.
My Spellbinder Romantic Rectangles
was used for the backing for the focal point.
This was popped and inked with
Memento Angel Pink
Got an old GKD stamp set out
Vogue Vases - maybe one of the first ones
of Gina's I bought.
I inked the leaves in Memento Olive Grove
fussy cut the flowers twice once with
plain pink paper and the second with scrap DP
The big vase was popped and inked with sticky
embossing powder and I then added
Twinklets Diamond Dust which just
looks like crystal to me.
Added some ribbon and a strip
of mulberry paper to the back and a small strip
of paper to use as a shelf
finishing with pearls for the floral centres
and rhinestones in the background.

We both used embossing folders for our background with totally different looks. I love your sparkly vase, Ina, and the dainty flowers. Why did we all see the wallpaper and flowers first? ;)
