c. 1870

This layout was inspired by the April sketch at Blue Fern Studios.  I used BFS Tweet Friends chipboard, which I painted with texture paste and heat embossed:

I'm also submitting my layout at:

* Clique Kits ~ Anything Goes.  The sponsor this month is Fancy Pants; I dug into my stash and used a Fancy Pants Creative Cards designer trading card as my photo mat. That card guided my embellishment choices for the rest of the layout.

* Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge ~ Use old stash.  The oldest stash item I've used is the above mentioned FP card.  The Prima embossed flowers are a 2007 release (just checked the packaging), and the Kaisercraft paper is from a 2012 collection.  And then there's the layout theme ~ a beautiful old house built circa 1870.

Other materials:
Kaisercraft Lil Primrose - Fancy Dress patterned paper
Prima Belle Fleur - Gold Embossed poinsettia
Chic Tags Autumn Days - Tabbed ATC journalling card
Flying Unicorn Victoria Garden - Rays of Love mini roses
Prima Zephyr textured canvas alphabets
