Our Vintage Affair Monthly Layout Challenge

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
This evening brings us to the next challenge at

As always the first challenge of the month running for two weeks is a layout challenge and this month we have another fabulous sketch to follow with the added requirement of needing to use at least one flower hand made by  yourself
Here is the sketch

but don't forget that handmade flower
So here is my design team inspirational piece for you today, but don't forget to hop over and see what other delicious creations have been made by my teamies
The beautiful papers are available at Grimsby Crafts, the image is cut out from one and the other I have used a MS round the page punch on.  I used the recent wedding photo's and decided to use my oval nestie on this one.  I have used lots of nestie punched leaves and lots of burgundy and white roses, some nestie tags, the MS heart punch, ribbon, pearls and stickles and a two fabulous charms that Loretta kindly sent to me. The scrolls are cut from the same paper as the bride and groom image as is the little bird top right.  The bottom of the cut out bride dress I have used the MS doily punch on and I have also used liquid pearls to decorate this and other areas.  now you are asking where is your hand made flowers, there are three of them on each of the MS hearts. I have also added some ribbon to the tags, 
Here are the close ups

Really enjoyed creating this piece.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and hope you like what I create and that in some small way it inspires you to try something new or different.  I would like to say thank you to my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my work, I love each and everyone of them. THANK YOU
