Softly Afloat

Hello everyone... I am the Guest Designer this month for "There's Magic in the Air Challenge" and here is my creation for week 2. Sue asked us to make a Clean and Simple creation using Nina's image called "Softly Afloat".  I colored the image and then cut it out using one of my Nestibilities scalloped circles. I then embossed it with crystal embossing powder and added color box chalks to the edges. I used my swiss dots embossing folder in my Cuttlebug machine for the background paper. A little sandpaper to make the dots pop, a handmade flower, a piece of white rick rack, a sentiment and four small cabachon pearls finished my creation.

So Pretty Pattie! Love that handmade flower! The sandpaper on the swiss dots is a great idea! It really does make the dots pop! Great Job!

I like it! It's not busy, so 'maybe' I'll be able to make something like this too. That's a big maybe.
