A scrap challenge! Layout #10 - You're Beautiful

So last week one of my downline with Close To My Heart asked if I had any new scraps I could send her to show off at her upcoming crop. I told her I had bulk of the new sweetheart paper and agreed to send her some 4x6's of the paper and she would have to come up with a card with what I sent her. Well my curiosity got the best of me as I wanted to see if I could come up with a layout with what I was sending her. Within minutes I pulled the Kraft and cocoa scraps out to add to the 4x6 B&T's and had a layout! I knew right away what pictures would go with these fun colors.
Here's the finished product!
A close-up of the title using my new found favorite CTMH product, Eclectic Irresistables. I sponged the bottom of the letters with baby pink and then sponged the top with cotton candy to give the title a little detail. I have found the little "fuzz bumps" that are on the letters from where they were holding on to the base bother me, so to be rid of them I simply take my distressing sanding block and sand it down!
A close-up of the fun flower from the pink ribbon collection. I added a grosgrain ribbon bud to the middle as well as a pearl.
I have made a challenge to all of my downline - I have sent them all 4x6 scraps of this fun sweetheart paper and have asked them to see what kind of creations they can come up with. They can add more scraps, but must use the scraps I sent them. I will be posting their creations in the next few weeks so make sure and come back and check!

Your work is beautiful. Thank you for sharing!

I have one question -- what kind of camera do you have?
