S1701 Bloom and Grow

I have created this layout using the new Chelsea Gardens paper pack (X7230B), Chelsea Gardens Scrapbooking stamp set (D1760) and Bloom and Grow stamp set. I also used a retired Alphabet stamp set for "Nana's 70th".

The layout pattern is from Make It From Your Heart Vol 1 - page 20.
I made a couple of adjustments to allow extra width for my landscape photo instead of the portrait photo in the book.
I stamped the two card embellishments using pear ink and then used my waterbrush to add colour to the tiny leaves. I stamped the sentiments in Heather ink and then matted them on Heather cardstock.
The "Wonderful" title, flower and leaves are all stamped from the Chelsea Gardens Scrapbooking stamp set.
