Swirlydoo's "Do it Yourself" Challenge

If you would like to see some photos of the steps before this...please see this post.  It shows the paper and stamping..before it is all distressed..etc. 

After I got my kids on the bus this morning I went right to work creating the LO I started last evening!  It has been a long time since I have been this "Inspired' to finish a project!
This was Great Fun!
I used my Silhouette SD to print and cut my photo, and both the scallop circle and black circle.  I stamped and inked the scallop with one of the stamps I created...just like the rest of the papers.
I used gold Christmas Picks that I purchased last week at JoAnns, and the gold pip vine.  I used my hot glue gun to attach all these embellies to my page.  I really love how thins is turning out!
Here is a close up of my Rose die cut that I created.  I used Ranger distress stickles in Shabby shutters and Dried Marigold on the die cut.  So now it is all Sparkly...and Glittery!
This is a close up of one of the many antique buttons I have.  I simply took apart the pip berry cluster and ran the brown covered wire through the button holes.  Then I curled them...I just love the added texture to the page these elements add!
This is the Finished project...unless I find something more to  Scrapbook page designing is a lot like painting for me...I never know when to stop with the details!  I am really glad I did this page, I think it ill inspire me to make some more!

My friends that know me...would say this is "Very Heathery"
