Happy Friday everyone, and a Happy New Year.
Here is my first layout this year for SOUS design team.
And this is how I did it.
First of all I chose the colours from the photo. I love purple and green together and I added some white.
First of all I matted my photo in purple cardstock, inked the edges and rounded the corners.
I took a 12x12  peice of scalloped cardstock in purple which I lay on top of a sheet of  12x12 green bazzill card.
Then I found a paper in a patterned green and purple and using my scalloped ruler I made a scalloped square.
I inked the edges and matted this onto a peice of green card that I scalloped and inked the edges.
I found a white doily and glued this down. Then added a green circle, which I cut using some wiggly scissors, then I inked the edges.
I glued my matted photo to all these layers.
I used a tree sticker from an old sheet of Christmas stickers I had and added some small flower buds.
I added a few handmade vines to the base of the tree and some purple and white flowers.
I then die cut 3 snowflakes and added gems.
I added a few more flowers  and a journaling box.
And to finish I die cut the title. 
I hope you like it and give it a go. See sketch below.
