Basic Grey Bittersweet

First I made some glitter hearts, I took a chipboard heart and placed it inside a plastic bag, using stickles I drew over the heart... I applied the stickles quite thickly, I then slid the chipboard heart over and using another colour of stickles did the same thing, I repeated this a few times using different colours as I wasnt sure what colour heart I wanted at this stage.

I left the stickles to dry over night ...... when the glitter glue had dried I peeled the shapes off the plastic.
I cut some squares from the basic grey bitter sweet papers using a suare punch, I inked the edges of the punched squares using chestnut roan cats eye ink pad

I cut a mat for my photo from BasicGrey Bittersweet - Almond Toffee paper, and i scalloped the edge, then drew round the edge with a white pen.

I cut my white card stock to 8.5x11 and arranged the punched squares under my photo mat, then stuck all this to the white card.

I took my grey glitter heart and glued this to a flower and then glued a small pink flower to the top of the glitter heart.

I took a grungeboard bookplate and inked it with pale pink ink.

When the ink had dried I used cotton candy stikles to glitter the bookplate and left this to dry.

Once dry I attached a love charm using some pink fibre

I attached the flower embellishment and the bookplate over the end of the lace and border sticker.
I matted my photo on cream glitter card. And stuck this on to the photo mat. I added my title using making memories tiny alphas and added my journalling

Here is my finished LO
