Be Your Own Beautiful...

Managed to get back into the craft room after a few days... busy evenings lately :)  When I saw the inspiration challenge at Just Add Ink, I knew what I wanted to use.

I thought the Live Beautifully papers were perfect for it.  And of course, any excuse to do some fussy cutting is good for me :)  I fussy cut different parts of the pattern paper then created a cluster of flowers.
I mounted the cluster on foam squares, adhered a die cut sentiment and finally embellished with some gold gems.  

The sketch is from:

You're so good at fussy cutting, too! :) Actually I sometimes find fussy cutting to me kind of relaxing...as long as I don't grip the scissors too tightly. Wonderful card! Those roses are lovely. :)

The flowers are just gorgeous Laurel, clustered together against that classic B&W pattern this is really eye catching! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

This is so pretty, Laurel! I love the contrast between your background pattern and your lush and gorgeous floral arrangement. The depth of colour is so realistic and your fussy cutting is fantastic too. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

I love fussy cutting too, I'm not very good at it but find it quite relaxing!! Those flowers are gorgeous and fit with the challenge perfectly. And really like the black and white geometric paper you used in the background, makes those flowers pop. So glad you joined us this week at Just Add Ink!
