This layout is the final piece of the La Vie En Rose swap set I put together for the Awesome Artist swap.
I created the background out of pomegranate, black, and white cardstocks. Then I built that panel of patterned squares divided by gold foil tape with black zig zag hand stitching over the top. I did not want to have to stitch through the entire layout base! I added a line of stamped "sweet" words along bottom of the stitched panel. Then I went to town with the La Vie En Rose Complements.
The embellishment clusters are a mix of chipboard, photo realistic stickers, and La Vie En Rose assortment badge buttons. I added a generous sprinkling of enamel gems to finish off the clusters.
