Simply Adorable-Die cut reveal SOUS

Hello Fellow scrappers..

Here we are again.  Same time, only different day..LOL  Us girls are having our die cut reveal today and for this week, our Leah challenged us to use a GIFT die cut..  I didn't want to make another X-mas layout for this week  so, thought to grab a photo of my hubby and scrapped that instead..  Plus, I got to use the Sweetheart cartridge, which has been gathering dust for a long time..

 so, here is my take on this week's challenge..
This is by far, one of my all time photos of my hubby and I've scrapped it twice now..LOL

How's a few close ups and some details:

The blooms are from Mother's Day bouquet and the small center flowers are a punch.
I inked the edges with Fired Brick disterss ink and then added some pink liquid pearl.

The over sized heart is from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.. I actually used CCR to edit it a bit.. Stretched it,,Then used my MS edge punch to create the lace edge.. The tiny pink flowers are a flower punch.

The title is a phrase I found on the 3-Birds on parade cartridge.. added some drops of white liquid pearl for added detail and attached it to the layout using foam tape..  I also used my MS edge punch to create a band on top of the photo..

And finally my roses.. I cut a scalloped circle cut from the Bloom cartridge and created the roses.. super easy and I bet you can find great tutorials on youtube and Pinterest if you haven't already..  The big leaves are from the Mother's Day bouquet cartridge and the small leaves, plus branch's are a MS punch..  The gift boxes are from the Sweethearts cartridge..
