One Little Word - Simplicity

Although I am totally happy with this layout, I am not too happy how dark the swirls came out.
I had no textured white cardstock so had to go with plain. I wanted the photo to be the focal point so chose not to use any patterned paper. I picked the flowers (scrapfairies) to mirror the daffodils. The purity lemon bazzill, is a large tag that tells my love of these simple flowers.
Font Scriptina, printed directly onto the cardstock. Swirls are papermania foam. Buttons also papermania. Letter stickers £1 shop. This was one of my goals. I now how 3 ATC's completed, a card, for a challenge Esther set before going on her hols to use an image Miss Maisie & almost another layout, the inter team scraplift. Just the DCM mid week extra which is nearing completion & then onto the home straight with my CJ entry!!! Phew, this way I get to rest at the weekend.
