Hi guys, here is a layout I have made for Swirlydos, Swirly Hues challenge - which is using a colour scheme and sketch. Great if you need some inspiration. See below. Anyway, I love these colours together and knew just the photo to use. First of all I chose aqua cardstock for the photo. I  mattted the photo and distressed the cardstock for the photo. I then cut out a circle with the rest of the aqua cardstock, which I distressed. I found some polka dot papers in the colour scheme and cut a couple of circles out of them and distressed them also.  I double matted the circles on top of the peachy pink background paper and adhered this to some aqua background card all of which I distressed,  and then adhered this onto some pale aqua card. I stuck my matted photo down and then started to decorate. I added some borders and the pom poms, die cuts some branches which I thought looked a little bit like seaweed, added some die cut swirls, some flowers and butterflies. I added some pearls and then printed out my title onto some white cardstock. I then added the date and that was it. Hope you like it.
