Embrace Life - Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday and welcome back for another Inspirational Share from the team over at Heartfelt Creations.  Today I am continuing with the Italiana Riviera Collection and i have a layout to share with you.


The purples and mauves in the paper is what inspired me to create purple flowers using the Botanical Rose.  The photo of Willis is perfect against the old mill.
The border die really cuts so easily on cardstock and i know i will be using it a lot in coming projects.

Below is a detail of the Botanical roses open and the detail of the ivy leaves.
