Brilliant Artist layout-cuttlebug blog entry-Out for publication

 The weekends seem to just fly by, its already Sunday..
Spent a few hours this morning putting this layout together..
My DD drew this flower and star a few years ago.  I guess she had it planned as a tattoo..
I found it by accident going through some old paper tablets as I was getting ready to throw them away..
Good thing I went through it or this master piece might of ended up in the trash..

Here are a few close ups:

I used my cuttlebug to emboss the flowers and the flourish.  The embossing
