Counterfeit Kit challenge - layout No. 4

Well I have never had such a run of doing in real life paper and glue layouts and I have since starting to do the Counterfeit Kit challenge my first one was in February I love the tutorials and ideas that they put up to make your own things.
This layout is also covering the weekly challenge on UKScrappers which is
Celebration/special event
Pink or Blue
Bells, houses, stamping or flowers 

Celebrate special birthday
I used one of my precious My mind's eye lost and found patterned papers which is so nice I didn't want to cover too much of it. I cut a circle out of some card stock and using my Martha Stewart corner punch made it into a doily. I then added three flowers which I made using Nellie Stellen flower punch/embosser, silk trim and buttons. the Birthday part of the title I stamped on a piece of spare card, heat embossed it and cut round each letter inking the edges and placing on 3D foam pads.
one of my Journal cards is the only other thing added the rest is on the paper.

That combo of the doily and the little flowers really draws my eye to the photo - nicely done.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
