You Make My Heart Flutter - SPCC #13

Monday are so busy!  Two posts in one day! 

Here we are at this week's SPCC color challenge #13:

At first I was not feeling this combo.  The rose threw me.  But once I got it all pulled together I loved this combo!  Here's how I used it:

The colors are all so beautifully represented in Basic Grey's Urban Prairie collection.  Of course, I just had to do some fussy cutting...the flowered border (obvious) and the zig zag green diamonds border (abutting the photo, which isn't as obvious in the pic that it's cut zig zag). 
Lovin' the trimmed ribbons on this layout, too.  I like stuff with "interest".

And how about that Unity Stamp Co. heart?  Yes, I know...I've used it before already.  But I LUH-UHVE it.  And both these pics really do make my heart flutter. 

More masking fun on the right side of the l/o.  First I laid down a Heidi Swapp mask, then stamped a music staff image all over with VersaMark, then I sprayed it with some pearl Glimmer Mist.  I love the way the mist blurred the stamped image in some areas and in other clung to and highlighted it.  Yum!

The design of this layout is compliments of last week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  I realized half way through making my layout that I wouldn't be able to post this during the proper week on ST.  Oh, well.  I think Diana will forgive me.  LOL!

Details:  Paper - Basic Grey, Stampin' Up!; Stamps - Unity Stamp Co., Delish; Ink - StazOn, VersaMark; Heidi Swapp mask; Glimmer Mist; SEI pearl brads; ribbon - Michael's, unknown; Zig Milennium pen.

OK, let's see your SPCC creation this week using this awesome color combo!  Link it HERE to Mr. Linky.   Be sure to check out what all the amazing SP Divas created for your inspiration, too.  Leave them so love!!
