Manor House Creations DT - True Beauty

Hi everyone, I have a LO to share created for Manor House Creations, which was inspired by the gorgeous indigo flower from the Layout Pack - Fabulous.

True Beauty Lies Within

I was playing around with flowers from my MHC stash and loved the contrast of the jade green vinette with the large indigo flower.  I created some flower clusters with these 2 vibrant flowers and softened them with a few white minuette blossoms and the blue and white Ashlee flower to blend in with my mixed media background.
I pulled apart one of the indigo flowers to create 2 flowers for my smaller side clusters and added some recycled bling jewellery to my flower centres.

To tie in with my diecut background I cut the ends off an oval cheval frame and tucked them under my photo.
MHC Product:  LO Pack-Fabulous, Vinette-jade, Solitude, Minuettes-pack, Ashlee-white,
Ornate cheval frame.

Other Product used:  Basic Grey pp's, Melissa Frances embossing folder, Kaisercraft butterfly stencil and lace stamp,  Prima rubons, Silhouette Cameo diecut background, modelling paste, Luminarte pigment powder-fern, Glimmermist-kiwi, Ek Success border punch, jade microbeads, recycled jewellery.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
