Guest DT at Julia Spiri's Challenge Blog

Such an honour to be invited to Julia Spiri's Challenge Blog as their Guest Designer for May 2016.
Today I have created my GDT project with this absolutely stunning Julia Spiri Image which I have altered slightly to suite my Frame. Here is the actual full sized stunning Bride Image and you can find her HERE!
The gorgeous beautiful Red Poppie Flowers I have used for the Brides Bouquet and also to embellish the side of my Frame are also a Julia Spiri Designed creation. These Poppies are pre-coloured and print straight off, no colouring required. There are a fabulous range of various Poppies with this purchase package. All you need to do is print off and cut out. You can see how these beautiful Red Poppies enhance my project perfectly.

You can find Julia Spiri's Watercolour Poppies Clipart Handpainted package in her shop on this Link HERE!
