Prima Flower DT project for Generations Crafting

Was I surpised when I got a surprise package from Floren Boynton over at Generations Crafting and when I opened it, it had a bunch of beautiful Prima flowers in it.. I contacted Floren and she asked if I would create something with them.. yeah, I'd Loooooove to..
I love flowers, so it was my pleasure...LOL
For this layout, I thought to use the orange flowers and then then some of the little orange roses, which I thought were brilliant and so cute..
I used a plain white carstock base, added a Websters Pages dye cut which I had cut , then added brown cardstock for the photos mat with a yellow one on top of that.. Hand made a vine, first I added the leaves and then adding the Primas after I had wired the vine to the layout
(makes it easier to postition the flowers this way)..
finally adding a few ribbon blows and pearl drops.. Oh, and the very last thing I did was clear emboss the butterflies (which I stamped) and then using Tim Holts distress inks: Mustard seed and Vintage photo, I inked all around the edges of the white cardstock, wipping the excess ink off of the embossed images with a paper towel..  "Summer" is cut from the Storybook cartridge and the "lazy Days!" are stickers from Basic Grey.
I think this came out pretty cool looking..
