"Sophie" Layout & Card
By Mistra Hoolahan

Hi everyone!  Today I played with some sweet Authentique papers from their "Beautiful" range... and the gorgeous soft colours were a perfect accompaniment for our favourite flowers and lace from Green Tara.

This is the daughter of my beautiful friend Nancy... it was taken a couple of years ago, this sweet girl is quickly growing into a gorgeous young lady, just like her mum.

paper roses and silk with swarovski crystals, framing some Dusty Attic chippy...

snippets of cute flower edged organza...

more flowers, lace and ribbons... 

The white paper roses are a must have in my scrap stash... perfect as is, and also so easy to colour!  The darker pink and pale yellow flowers here were dipped into some colour washes to create colours perfect for the layout papers.  They take the colour well, and don't fall apart once saturated!

 Hi again... here's the little card I made with the layout leftovers!
"Beautiful" Card
I used some of the left over papers and lace trims from the Sophie layout to create a card... it's simple but was fun to create a little card with scraps that may have ended up in the bin!

 A simple 3cm paper rose was all that was needed to show of the muslin bow...

and lots of layers of paper and lace...

I love how adding the lace between the paper layers softens the whole look of the design.

Thanks for visiting... take care and be true to you!
