I've had a go at Julie's February Sketch. I flipped it upside down, and it did kinda take off with a mind of its own... but I loved being inspired by the sketch as it gave me a great starting point! I tried to make a swing - I think it looks like one if you twist your mouth sideways you can see it (LOL) :lol:
Image

I started with Lost and Found Market Street Love 'Beautiful' Glittered Die Cut Paper but I didnt want the scalloped edges so I used a craft knife and cut the centre out. I'll use that scalloped edge in another project!
Image

Using the 'Roses' Paper from Life Stories Day 258 Paper and Accessories Kit (totally inexpensive and worthwhile kit at only $9.95 especially if you like kraft!) cut it to size just a bit bigger than the Glittered Die Cut paper. I also cut out the centre of the Roses paper so I could use a bit of it later on.
Image

I rounded the corners to match as well and really liked this look
Image

Using a flower punch, punched out a few flowers of the 'Roses' paper.

In the centre of each flower I placed a brad:
MME have so many fabulous decorative brad packets in their ranges, and I think the best way to see them is to actually type in the search box on the top right hand bar 'decorative brads' and it will list them all!
Image

I've hung a little heart trinket off one of the flowers Stella and Rose Mabel 'Love' Trinkets And the little label stickers acting as strip journaling are Stella and Rose Hattie 'Happy' Label Stickers and the little punched out hearts areStella and Rose Mabel 'Little Lady' Paper (reverse side)
