********************
Hello everyone! Today is my day to share my project created with our Easter themed "Hope" collection and some ZVA Creative bling! 


I wanted to show that this beautiful collection can be used for more than Easter themed projects, it's also great for Baby themed projects! I choose to make an little canvas. Instead of keeping things traditional, I wanted to use the back side of the canvas.  In the middle, I added another mini canvas to add a little depth and dimension.


I incorporated some really old vintage buttons that were used on pillows. 
The ZVA Creative pearl flourishes match this collection perfectly!


I also printed the photo on canvas.

Products Used:
Authentique: Hope collection 12x12 papers,8x8 bundle, statements
Zva creative: swirls
