"Make a Difference"

Hello again everyone,  Jan here today with my first post for the new term.

On this layout I've used a mixture of white and burgundy flowers,featuring  "White Swarovski Crystal", "4cm Heirloom",  "Sakura", "Laurel", "Velvet Leaves", "Silver/Acrylic Spray",
and  "White Rosebuds".

Here I have included a white "4cm Primula",  the beautiful "Laurel", 
 a pale pink "Swarovski Crystal",  White "Cherry Blosssom", and
 part of a "Silver Diamente Trim".

"Beauty is..."

I had a spring garden in mind when I created this layout. There are so many gorgeous Green Tara flowers it's not difficult to find something to use wherever you want.

"Swarovski Crystal Pale Pink", "Violet Cherry Blossom", "Purple 5cm Azalea"Pale Blue 7cm"Wild Rose",  Pale Pink 5cm "Tutu", 4cm Yellow "Primula" Pink and White
 5cm "Azalea, Rose 3cm "Swarovski Crystal",Purple 3cm "Velvet Leaves",  1.5 Lime "Mini Flowers",  3.7 "Metal Heart"

Pale Pink 25mm "Jute Ribbon", Purple 5cm "Azalea",  Yellow 6.5 "Heirloom",
Cream 5cm "Azalea", Green "Satin Flower and Leaf Garland",


 The White "Skeleton Mesh" in the centre inspired this layout.  I added 1.2cm White Lace along the bottom.
