Orange Paperie & Co May Challenge

The beginning of the month is always busy because of all the new challenges going live. And the 5th of the month means that it's time for the new challenge at Orange Paperie & Co . Kim has given us a beautiful Mood Board to work with along with a quote. I love the softness of this Mood Board;

I've taken my inspo from the colours, flowers, lace & tape, hearts, as well as the quote.

I've used texture paste & a stencil on the background then inked over it to highlight the design more. The pp is from Prima.I've also used washi tape behind the photo & fussy cut some of the paper to make the leaves pop. There is also burlap behind the pic & I've added some metal corners & little pearl hearts from the Trinket Track. The pretty butterflies are some I bought ages ago at the Brisbane Expo & I've used Liquid Pearls in pink for their bodies.

The tags are from Craft Queen & the title is a mix of American Crafts Thickers & Scrapmatts.
I love making feminine pages. It's always a decision to know how far to go with the amount of flowers though. Personally I can never have enough flowers in my stash. Please head on over to Orange Paperie & Co, we'd love to see your work.


  1. A gorgeous, feminine page with those soft tones of pink and green. Love the filigree butterflies and the yummy texture work. Beautiful :D
