Pretty in Pink and Gold

Hello friends!  Lisa here, and I am so sad that this is my last post as a Butterfly Inker, but so very thankful for having the chance to have been a part of the first Design Team here! yay!  Also can't wait to see who is on the new team and the fabulous work they will be creating!!! 

With that said I am so happy to share my last layout, and it is totally girly.  I love that my little Maddie is all girl, dresses and pink everything, so this layout is perfect for her..

 (and here is an angled look so you can see the shiny gold, oooohhhhh..... ahhhhhh!)

Supplies Used:
Market Street Ashbury Heights 6 x 6 Paper Pad by MME
Market Street Nob Hill Foiled Mix Bag
Market Street Ashbury Heights Chipboard Buttons
Market Street Ashbury Heights Deco Brads
Market Street Ashbury Heights Enamel Dots

I started my layout by first adding water paint in pink and gold as my background.  I then layered the pink patterned paper, gold lace paper, and doily.  I add my photo, and finished with embellishments.  This was a fairly quick layout to put together, but all of that gold and pink just screamed yum to me!

  • When using rub-ons don't be afraid to lay it over pattered papers or photos as I have done with the word cute here.
  • Running smaller embellishments through a xyron can always save you time.

Thanks for stopping by and a huge thank you to Vanessa for having me on her team!

Happy Crafting!
