I took this picture at The Holyland Experience here in Orlando,FL a few years back. If you have never been to it, I strongly recommend it!

For the flowers, I stamped, die cut, and glimmer misted the Malabar flowers. I added pearls as their centers and used the green leaves from the Western Broncos Die as fillers. I also added some glitter to the flowers and the butterflies that I randomly placed on the layout.

Another look at my flower cluster.

I made another doily with the corner die. I also used the fence stamp in this one because it was very fitting. I stamped the sentiment directly unto the photo with archival ink.

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Trim 1/4” off two sides of the background pattern paper. Use the Distress it all tool to distress the edges. Ink the edges with the Tim Holtz blending tool and Vintage Photo distress ink. Adhere to another background pattern paper and machine stitch all around the edge. Fold a 7”x3.5” white cardstock in half and run the smallest die from the Decorative Blossom Corner Set through the Grand Calibur machine. You might need to run it a few times to get it to cut both sheets of paper at the same time. When everything has been cut, unfold the cardstock and adhere the doily over the center of the layout. Trim a 1”x11” strip of paper and adhere over the bottom 1/3 area of the center of the layout. Trim another piece and punch edge with Martha Stewart punch. Adhere over first piece. Choose a picture that has plenty of white space. Print it out and stamp the sentiment directly right on the top right corner of the picture.  Add picture over the doily and strips of papers. Stamp and color using Prismacolor pencils and blend using OMS the fence from the Floral Fence Precut Set. Fuzzy cut it and add to right side of the picture. For the cluster, stamp and die cut different size flower. You will need two of the same size for the larger blooms but only one for the smaller ones. Mist them with blue glimmer mist to add color and add Prima flower centers to the larger flowers and Recollections pearls to the smaller ones. Die cut a few greeneries from the Western Broncos Die and form the cluster under the photo using the leaves and flowers. Stamp, die cut and color with Prismacolors a few butterflies from the Brookside Manor PreCut Set. Add randomly to layout. Finally, stamp and die cut one dove from the same collection and ad it to the left side of the picture.
