Sept DT Autumn Leaves

While I a prefer to work with heavier weight patterned paper Autumn Leaves Poppies range is a wonderful line to work with. The centre daisy's have a raised and glittered surface and they're great for cutting out to use elsewhere on your layout as I did here, or on another layout altogether. I had a few compliments on the teal with the lime green and matching up the colour of the mug. Do you plan your layouts or are they mostly self evolving? The 'wave' was suppose to have been lime but I cut it out the wrong way and just couldn't get it to work with the photograph (Have now just realised I could've flipped the photo!). Teal was the only other colour I had in my stash that was going to work but I also realised I needed to add more of the lime to the mix. And how did I happen to have the Teal cardstock in my stash? I had bought it especially to create a layout for Innovations.....have they really gone to Sth Africa?

I cut out the poppies from one of the pp and adhered it to white Bazzil Cardstock. So different from what I usually do but I really like this one even if my red bow is wonky. Parts of the poppy petals are 'gloss' and very cool. The red tags popped in upside down in the bow read....for your birthday.
