MAWTT Challenge 85 - Photo Inspiration

Here's another MAWTT challenge and it's Lisa who is hostess this week and she has given us a beautiful photo to inspire us.

I have taken the daffodils to focus on and found this lovely vintage image for Valentine's day.

The layout was inspired from a scrapbook page I saw a while ago. I have simply cut some circles from music paper on the Cricut, used papers from my box of bits and sewn round them and I added a border and mounted the image in a stronger colour to help it pop off the page. To finish it off, flowers (from my stash), punched leaves and one of my downloaded butterflies. I used frayed burlap and shabby shutters DIs.

Here's the centre piece in close-up.

What take would you have on this photo?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
