Scrap page for Mom

So I saw Debbie's Pattern Paper Challenge on Frosted Designs. It was to make a scrap page with only pattern paper, extra entry if you only use one paper pack. So I got to looking through my paper and found my Melody Ross Homespun paper pack. I love love love this paper pack and have only used one sheet so far. So I used my brand new cricut cartridge Elegant Edges. I have wanted this one for awhile. I cut out the blue mat with the bird design. I used the circles one with the green pattern at the bottom. Then I put the birds that came from the previous mat onto it with pop dots. I tore the paper next to the blue mat, the leftover from what I tore, I pleated and put under the circle mat. The outsides of the circles, the leftover diamonds, I put them on tiny pop dots and put them in a row up top. I tried to use all my leftovers from cutting. I used a file metal holder from 7 Gypsies to hold on the circle fold envelope. There I can write a message. I stamped Quirky from Inkadinkadoo on the blue mat, along with a cool stamp from Prima. the dressmaker stamp is also from Prima, as is the pretty circles behind it. I stamped chandeliers from Kaiser craft down the side of the paper in Victorian velvet distress ink. I used tea dye distress ink everywhere. I stamped the words enchanting, charming and loved in chipped sapphire distress ink. I added some antique looking lace and some letter brads that spell mom. I used some washi tape to make a frame and I will be adding a picture of my mom. This is a Mothers Day gift for my mom.
