I love the new Simple Stories Vintage Bliss line.  The colors are muted and beautiful.  I used it in the blog hop last week and I created this piece for the Memory Works April Express Kit blog post and I wanted to share it here too because I really love how it turned out.

I used my Nestabilites label dies--both the Grand Nestabilities and regular sized to create the layers.  I also added lots of ink on the edges.  I had Nestabling from Want 2 Scrap and added that as an edge for this piece.  

I used another Spellbinders die to create the rolled rose and leaves.  The dangling charm was a sticker from the embellishment sheet, covered with an idea'ology fragment.  The laser cut butterfly came with the kit, the two smaller butterflies are Recollections and the bling from my stash.  The seam binding was colored with Distress Ink.  The garden stamp I picked up at StampScrapArt from Rubbernecker stamps.  The little dangle teardrop is from Maya Road.  I love how it turned out.  Wait, I think I said that already.  Need a Memory Works consultant?  I'd be happy to show you all the great papers, embellishments, stamps, inks, tools and other supplies we carry and hook you up with Simple Stories Vintage Bliss supplies.

Be happy, get scrappy!
