Weeds are Flowers Too! - Take 5 Challenge

I'm hosting the latest Take 5 Challenge over on the Paper Issues blog today, and I'd love for you to play along!! What is a Take 5 Challenge you ask?? Take 5 is where I give you a list of inspiration items, and from that list you must choose 5 items to use on your project. You could win a gift card to the Paper Issues store!!

For my layout, I used patterned paper, a sticker, cardstock, die cut, and a photo of something other than a person as my 5 items.

To start my layout, I added the journaling to the white cardstock first, then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the title. After I had the design cut, I backed it with the pretty woodgrain paper, then added it to the floral paper. Next I painted on a few layers of different colors of green watercolor paints, and then splattered on a bright pink and a gold mist. I cut the leaf cluster out of the same woodgrain paper, and added it along with my embellishments and photo. To finish the layout, I stamped the date, and then stamped the town name with a vintage postal stamp I found on ebay. One of my most favorite ebay finds ;)

Be sure to stop by the Paper Issues blog, for even more ideas from the design team!
