I got my May Scrap That! kit this weekend and just love the Pink Paislee papers (alliteration anyone?!) - they're so romantic and perfect for a Wedding layout. I created this layout, which I've entitled "Beloved", based on The Color Room's Palette #58, as well as my interpretation of Sketch #155 at Creative Scrappers.
The Butterfly Garden papers by Pink Paislee are so gorgeous that they need very little embellishment; I used one sheet as the base page and fussy cut sections from another sheet to create the cluster of images on the lower left side of the page. I used a corner rounder on the papers and photo to soften the look and then inked the papers with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. The doilies (behind photo and title card) were misted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Denim Blue, which was the perfect colour to match the hints of blue in the base page.

I found the paper flowers at a local surplus store for less than $2/pkg (wow!);  they're all from A Bride's Wish  (Wedding Collection).  I love the soft blue and white combination.

The title card is a Glitz Designs Whatnot piece from the Love Nest collection. The shape perfectly mimics the shape of the "Rose" emblem from the larger paper cutout and was just right for this page.
