Happy NSD !

Webster's Pages' yummy bloomers and sparklers have finally landed on 
our sunny shores this week 
I just have to use them quickly, of course ! ;) 

Piradee has a nice challenge going on over at our LSS Made with Love
to incorporate stitching , use our own handmade flowers & fabric in a layout .

My handmade flower is inspired by Audrey Pettit's example
the base flower is created using PP's artisan tape in houndstooth pattern
 & then I added the bloomer for the flower center & scraps for the leaves .
 Way to stretch these beautiful bloomers !!
The gingham yoyo is store bought .;) 

I couldnt resist adding some of those gorgeous sparklers as accents here ! 
The most beautiful vintage style buttons I've come across . 

Layout design inspired by Stuck Sketches - May 1st sketch.

Oh, this is beautiful, Pearl! Love the combination of goodies on here. You're making me wish I didn't put back that BG basics paper at the LSS the other day. ;) Love the touches of hand-stitching on here, the sprinkling of the buttons, and the journaling envelope. And how fun that you tried out my flower. It looks wonderful!
