Guest Designer Layout for Scrap and Play Challenges!!!

Hello to all my crafty friends!!!  It's a very hot and very humid day here in the Sunshine State!!!  Hope you're having beautiful weather wherever you may be :-)

"Fly" with 7 Dots Studio "Cold Country" Collection
I'm on the blog today to share a layout I created as a Guest Designer for a new challenge site called Scrap and Play Challenges!  I was given the following sketch to work with:

I used the 7 Dots Studio "Cold Country" Collection from the Frosted Designs Store to create this layout:

I LOVE love LOVE this line!!!!  Aren't the paper just gorgeous?!?
I started the page by creating a die-cut using one of my Super8 punches.  I distressed the edges lightly, then used Dusty Concorde Distress Ink and a waterbrush pen to create the purple hue around the edges.  I finished it off with black distress ink for more contrast against the background paper.  
Then I used various pieces and inks to create circles around the page:

I used a Spectrum Noir marker to add a purple hue around the photo as well, then went over it with my White Uniball Pen from the Frosted Designs Store!

I added various Petaloo and Prima flowers to the corner of the photo, tucking in some Tim Holtz Film Strip ribbon in areas.

I misted some trim with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Pearls mist until I achieved the color I wanted, then tucked it under the photo for contrast against the purples!

There are several quote stickers included with this collection, so I chose a few and added a small poem at the bottom!  

I finished the page with Studio Calico wood veneer stars that were colored using White Dylusions spray!!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
