Tissue paper and bling

Frosted Designs Sketch along Tuesdays!! What a fun sketch this was! I loved the way they suggested to frame the picture. I used a page from a mini chipboard album for my mat. A little bit of red and black ink to pretty it up a bit. The photo corners are leather and are from Making Memories. I think they are about 10 years

I then mounted the whole thing on tissue paper. I used plain red paper and stamped it all up with black ink. Then it was crumpled up. I also "tried" to use decorative scissors on the edges.
The flowers were also made with some inked and crumpled tissue paper. I tried to be a little more creative with the flowers, but it just wasn't happening. But it was nothing that a little bling couldn't fix! The inspiration for all of the tissue paper is this week's challenge from My Moxie Fab World. It's all about Tissue Paper Magic!

The background paper is from My Mind's Eye. I love this whole collection. It's great that you can add any color and it all works.

All of the bling is from Prima and Basic Grey. And the giant Ruby gem is from the stash. No idea where that came from, but I was glad it was laying around!

Off to have some fun with the Easter Bunny and enjoy the great weather...finally!!! :)
