Yes, I've been scrapbooking yet again.....  This is the page I had in mind when I created the card a couple of days ago using the same DSP.  This is of my aunt & uncle, who are brother & sister.

I selected my colours from the Azaleas in the background.  When I scrapbook, I tend to go with the colours that are not so predominant.  I think it makes for a better page, although everyone is different & scraps differently.

I used the Textured Melon Mambo Cardstock for my base & layered a piece of DSP over the top.  For my photo, I made a border from a piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock, which was adhered to a piece of Melon Mambo Cardstock.  The whole lot was adhered to the DSP.

I cut a piece of Certainily Celery Satin Ribbon & adhered to the top of the DSP, added a piece of  Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon over the top, punched 3 flowers with the Boho Blosso Punch, 2 in Pink Pirouette & 1 in Melon Mambo.  I adhered these to the top of the Whisper White Ribbon & added a Basic Pearl to the centre of each.

I handwrote my journalling onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Stampin' Write Journaler, adhered to a piece of Melon Mambo Cardstock, then to a piece of Certainily Celerly Cardstock &  to the layout at an angle.

I cut a doiley from the DSP Pack, adhered to the journalling, punched a flower using the Boho Blossom Punch, adhered a Basic Pearl in the centre & lastly adhered to the page.

I've just realised, No Stampin'!!!!!  A very easy page, but one I am quiet happy with!
