Giddy Up

Following on the challenge of making hand-made embellishments and using the Glitz Design 'Pretty In Pink' collection I created another layout using different patterned papers from the range.

I used Bazzill Kraft cardstock for the base, then layered this with Bazzill French Vanilla and then added Glitz Design 'Pretty In Pink' Toile (reverse side), which is a lovely pale pink.  I added side banners using strips of paper from the same collection in Toile, Roses, Polka - adding a stitched effect using an American Crafts Metallic Marker (in Rose).

The title is chipboard alphabet stickers from MME Lush range in black.  The rosette is made using the Tim Holtz Rosette Die on the Big Shot (another fave product!).  I drew faux stitching around the outsides of the pink paper and French Vanilla cardstock using the American Crafts pen (as before).  The edging along the bottom of the layout is from my own stash as is the button in the middle of the rosette.
