Just had to use these beautiful Hot Off The Press papers to go with her – perfect!Used my Nesties to create all the frames and layering for the sentiment and inside decoration.I mixed up three sets of Marianne Design dies and added some flat backed pearls.All edges are all inky and distressed for a vintage feel.
