True Romance - Green Tara

Hi everyone... today I have another snapshot from my trip to New York.  These are just a few of all the carriages lined up outside Central Park, waiting to take lovers for a romantic ride through the park, or a couple of dorky tourists, either works LOL.

I loved the red in this shot, love red!  But it's rarely a colour I scrap.  I was away at retreat when I created this so I didn't have quite the right flower colours with me, so to get just the right colour I sprayed some Pincushion Flowers, 3cm Roses and Apple Blossoms with Holly Berries SmoochSpritz.  I've sprayed the paper flowers before, but have always been hesitant with the fabric ones... Di reassured me it works a treat and it does, so so easy!  

I've added some Cherry Blossoms white for some lovely contrast.  The Cherry Blossoms are one of my favourite 'tuck in' flowers, they always fit perfectly into empty spots and look equally as good in a cluster or by themselves.   Here I've tucked one into a tear in my distressed edge and added a little bit of Silver Diamante Trim for a little bit of sparkle.

Tucked in here and there is some beautiful OffWhite Lace trim, topped with more Silver Diamante Trim.  I've even found a gorgeous little carriage charm in my stash from Handmade Halo, how perfect!

A gorgeous cluster of red and white... Pincushion and Sakura Fabric Flowers, Cherry Blossoms and Apple Blossoms, pretty Lace and elegant Silver Diamante Trim and a sweet little chipboard heart... true romance!

... and sweet Dusty Attic Flutterby adds that last little bit of perfection to the layout.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like this layout as much as I do... there's just something about red and white and romance!
