Snug as a Bug in a Rug

Good Monday is Monday after all!  I said I was going to do 2 layouts over the weekend, because I get so frustrated being such a slow scrapper...and lo and behold...I got one done!  YAY me!  LOL 

I created this LO for the negative space challenge over at  I don't normally do negative space, but I do like to challenge myself, so it's a great challenge for me!  This month we had to use either a solid white or black background and for the twist, handmade flowers.  All of these flowers are handmade by me.  They are my own creation, except for the centers which I borrowed some techniques from other designers, such as Lisa Gregory and Vicky A.  I also made the bling myself using dimension pearls, puffy paint, and transparencies.  I have some for sell in my Etsy shop, and I hope to be adding some more soon.

The flourishes were cut with my Sizzix BigKick using a sizzlits decorative strip.  

I used my silhouette to sketch the title and cut the tags.  I inked around the edges with jet black and fired brick.  I sprayed some white ribbon with red velvet glimmer mist and then put some black with it and wrapped around my brad.
I also added a little bit of the ribbon to my flower spray here. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
