need 2 know

Practical Scrappers Tuesday challenge for last week was to use leaves on a layout or other project. I love the leaves on the Authentique: Genuine, Forever paper. So I planned this layout around them. I used a sketch by Authentique as my starting point.

For this layout I began by laying all my fussy cut flowers on the page then drawing the leaves in with a pencil. Because nothing was glued down it was easy to tip everything off the page so I had elbow room to sew. After stiching the outlines of my leaves I erased any stray lines.
Next I adhered the 9 flowers on the right of the L/O, then placed the photo. I finished by adhering the flowers on the left. I added "lagoon" Stickles for the flower centers. I used CTMH ink and stamp for the edge of the page and a combination of A:Loyal and Genuine "details" stickers for the journaling and title. The large 2 is from the MME:Lush collection, I inked it to match the L/O. 
I made the ribbon rose and leaves from a trim card my fabulous friend Misty Buck sent me.
