Challenge #1 for Whimsical Scraps & Bugs

The above layout I made for the first challenge from Whimsical Scraps & Bugs. The challenge was to use orange, purple & black colors. 2 stars from any of our Cricut cartridges and 1 stamp. That is exactly what I did. The orange paper was scalloped on the side. The middle of the paper was spritzed with water and then opened up. The wetness of the paper was perfect and I could easily roll, rip and tear it. The page was then folded back to create an open window. Inside I highlighted the cute photo with plain purple and black paper. The black flowers are iron on appliques and they fit in just nicely. The center of the flowers have added orange pearls.
I love this layout and it was a joy to create. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Have fun and try something new today. Happy scrappin'.
