Beautiful Smile with Marcia

Hello Quick Quotes friends. Marcia here to host the blog today and share a layout I made with the gorgeous new Dusty Road collection.

My baby here turned 21 this past week and I've been feeling nostalgic. I came across this picture of her as I was looking through my photos and knew the Dusty Road papers were perfect for it. The chipboard stickers in this collection are amazing!

 
I love the lavender color with the cream and green. It makes me think of a garden. I am really wishing it were spring here in Minnesota. Brrr, it's been cold! I added green leaves to my background with some Green Tea Powderpuff ink and applied inks to the edges of my papers too. The inks help to hide the white core when die cutting too for my butterflies and title.
 

 
I even inked the edges of the chipboard sticker quote.
It gives it a little more dimension and makes it pop.
