Dream with every breath

If you're here for the Spice & Sugar blog hop please go here.
Good morning! A brand new challenge has been revealed at About A Girl. This time we are challenging you to use lots of flowers on your layout. How easy is that? For my inspiration page I used flowered paper as well as embellishments.
I used the "Natural" collection papers and alpha stickers by Authentique, mixed with Farmhouse "Country Kitchen" papers that came in my Aug. Scraps of Darkness kit. I distressed all my layers, inking the edges with the Prima chalker in Rusty Bucket. On the background, I added some random stamping and stencil work using ditress ink in "Brushed Corduroy" for a bit more added interest. The topaz rhinestones are from Recollections that I had in my stash. The flowers are a mix of Prima, Petaloo, Recollections, and my stash. The tape, doilies, charm, and chipboard buttons are all from my stash as well. The flourish die cuts were made using a Cheery Lynn flourish die.
For my rings I used Tim Holtz distress crackle paint in "Vintage Photo"
For the 1 2 3 Get Scrappy challenge board I went straight across the middle.
Thanks for dropping in! I hope you get a chance to join us at About A Girl with your flowery creations! I'd love to see them!
