Authentique 'Classique Beauty'

I am working with the gorgeous new Authentique 'Classique Beauty' for my DT work for The Scrapbook Store this month.  Here is my first layout.  I've used a photo of my DD and one of my best friends, taken on Christmas Day 2014.
I've used a piece of the Blue Fern Studio 'Roman Clocks Small' chipboard and some delicious Petaloo 'Burlap Wild Sunflowers' and Petaloo 'Dahlias'.  The butterflies are also from Petaloo and the mini roses are from Green Tara.
The chipboard title is from 2Crafty.  After covering it with a thin layer of gesso, I gave it some colour using my Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
 A close up of the other little flower cluster, showing off another gorgeous Petaloo burlop flower and a few Green Tara Mini roses.  The rhinestone flourish is an old Prima flourish from my stash.
  Another close up, just for good measure. :)
I've decided to play along at Scrap Africa this month, as the colours from their mood board are just so inspiring and perfect for this collection.  They also have some amazing inspiration up on the blog, so why not check it out and play along?
That's all from me for today.  I'm busy working on another layout using this collection, so will hopefully be back to share soon.  Thank you so much for popping by my blog. Have a lovely day.
Until next time.
