Smile- GDT for 13 Arts Challenge

For my giveaway press here

I’m in love with the new 13 Arts papers “Frosted Life”

From the first moment I saw the papers I fell in love with their soft feel, the pastel colors and the beautiful texture.
So I was really happy when Aida asked me to come and join her as a GDT.
Then I entered their first challenge on their blog and won so Aida invited me once more for the January challenge.
For  Challenge #3 you have to use

You can see all the white accents on the page and of course the pearls all around, including the pearl flowers from Zva.
First I cut out the brick paper and glued it across another textured background paper.
I love the brick paper its my favourite so I had to use it first.

Lately I’m obsessed with frames. This one is my favourite cut from my Cricut machine.

I used some Yummy Manorhouse Creations flowers and accented them with blue Petaloo flowers.
I originally thought I would make this layout pink but I love how instead I used the blue toned colors.

I accented the frame with cut-up lace from Green Tara, a nest from Melissa Frances, pearl flowers from Zva Creative and flying birds from Prima
