The reason why ..

I buy Black & White patterned papers ...

Been sitting on a whole range of Black & White Luxe Design patterned papers since they were first sold here in the 3rd Q of 2007. 
& never quite using them in a way that I'd be happy with . 
I hope these colours work without looking too much like Halloween ! lol 
I cut out some Cherry Blossom stalks from one patterned paper which would have been difficult for me to use as is . 
Trying out the some layering with different patterned papers - using Scenic Route & Luxe Design .
Embellishments : Ribbons , MM stickers , BG Obscure buttons , MM button brads, MM Funky Vintage clear embellies ,MM metal washer, spiral clip , mesh ribbon , Bazzill Blossom , pumpkin speckled brad, BG rub ons , Daisy D transfer tape ( yea ! now I had create that stitched look anywhere & everywhere if only i can make it come out nice & clean ! )

What a fabulous, striking layout, Pearl! B&W with one other colour looks so good. Had a look at some of your other recent work and you are making great use of the Cuttlebugged embossed papers. Glad you took the plunge with your circle maker too.

Good to see you getting an award as well!
