YSS sponsoring Color Combos Galore # 175

This is the second week that Your Scrapbook Stash is sponsoring the challenges over at Color Combos Galore.
It is so fun to be guest designing there with the other Stash Girls.

 This is the inspiration board for this weeks challenge.

The colours this week were a little more challenging for me than last weeks.
But hey, that is why these things are called challenges, right...?

After rummaging through my extensive stash I found some suitable papers and embellishments. It is quite a rough page. Everything is layered on top of a piece of cardboard that came with one of my orders of supplies from the states. I often like to use non-scrapbook products. It is afterall quite important to think green. But of course it is impossible to go without the smell of new papers and beautiful embellishments for long!

I punched holes and 'laced' black tulle to mimic the shoelaces. I made quite a few  flowers and I glued down a good number of little buttons.To make some of them stand out I outlined them with a pen.

I cut out a piece of magic mesh that would fit in the corner of my layout. I thought it would add dimension to the right side.
There is even magic mesh as part of the photo mat. I received it as a gift from a friend. Thanks Irma!

Bye for now. Come back soon!!
