I was really excited to try out some IAR flowers in this mini that are new to me, including the new short flower spray, which really makes the bistro layout above pop. I also tried out the puffy daisies -- super fun. I gave them a polka dot twist on what I call the polka dot page of my mini. And the CARNATIONS!!! OMG, love those!!!!
It was a challenge working with the colors in this paper collection —definitely outside my comfort zone of pale pink, aqua, creams, browns and blacks. LOL. But it was a fun challenge, and I love how this mini turned out.
Here are photos of the cover and other inside pages plus links to all the flowers and leaves I used in the mini.
