By Stephenie Smith

What I used:  Besides Daisy's beautiful paper I used some light and dark pink cardstock, some rick rack and a butterfly from my stash.  I used the Cuttlebug Baby's Breath embossing folder and a sentiment from TPC Studio.

What I like about this month's exclusive printable is the colors on it.  It is neutral, but it has all of those lines of color on the flower and in the map.  I really love the shape of the flowers too, they remind me of dogwood blossoms.  This paper works well with vacation cards or layouts as well as fall and spring.  I think it would even be a good background for some Christmas cards.
Here is the blog line up list! Please make sure to visit us tomorrow!

  1. This is wonderful Stephenie, I love those flowers, they look like magnolias to me. I really like the triptych in your layout, it's like looking out through a window x
