Heartfelt Creations & Scraps of Elegance

This week at Heartfelt Creations I am taking a detour from scrapping "My Guy" to get back to my girly roots and do a layout in honor of the Easter Season using the beautiful kit from Scraps of Elegance (March) Butterfly Dreams.
This is a photo of my of beautiful teenage daughter when she was a little girl on the Easter Bunnies lap wishing the Easter Bunny would leave her a pretty basket filled with yummies!

Heartfelt Creations Supplies:
HCPC- 3453 - Malabar Clematis Precut Set
HCD-719- Cross and Lilies Die

HCPC-3405- Leaf Medley Precut Set

The Butterfly Dreams kit contained the beautiful Bo Bunny Country Garden papers, zva pearl flourish, transparency by MME an the Kaisercraft wooden frame!
I embossed the large flower with Lindys embossing powder included in a past SOD kit. I did alot of edge punching and cutting them out to used as strips. I creased the strips like a ruffle and glued under my circle after sewing around the edge.
