Last day of the month and just in time to enter another challenge.  Inspiration for todays layout has come from the lovely Mistra at Donna Salazar Designs, just another great challenge blog I've come across recently.  Not only do they supply a sketch to follow, its also a colour challenge as well.

I got the colours as close as I could with the supplies I had, I hope they like it. 
Part of the criteria to enter was to use some DSD products, and as I had a very limited supply I had to wait until this 11th hour to start work.  Here I've started with a DSD Trunk in the Attic paper 'Banana Nut Loaf' (gotta love the names), which I grunged up with distressing, stencils with ink, paint & modelling paste.  Next came the lovely old doily, then the lovely photos.  Under the flowers I've added some of the trim that came in the Trunk in the Attic kit & lots of Dusty Attic chippies DA0660 Grass Cluster #1, Cyclone wire DA0737 & mini words #3 DA0477.  The grasses were sprayed with Dylusions Ink sprays, then flocked & glimmer misted.  The flowers are a mixture of I am Roses (daisy & rosebuds), Spellbinders bitty blossoms & Marianne designs die cut mini roses, again ink sprayed or glimmer misted.  To tone down the brightness of the page I've dabbed around a bit with DSD Mix'd Media inx - Jasmine.
Here's a couple of close ups of the beautiful flowers, which are so easy to make.

I loved making this page as these are colours and style I seem to migrate to a lot.  
Thank you for visiting, come and join me in this new fun challenge.
