What can I say...Want to Scrap has some really fun products and best of all, they work so well with Authentique.

I created this card because I love the Nestaboard from Want 2 Scrap.  I love the fact that it comes with matching bling...the Nestabling!  I used the new Irresistible Collection.  The combination of Want 2 Scrap and Authentique's Irresistible is perfect for this romantic card I created.

I left my Nestaboard in the natural craft color because I wanted it to stand out.  Fabulous huh?  What will you created using Want 2 Scrap and Authentique?  

Products Used:
Authentique Paper:  Irresistible Collection: 6x6 Bundle #IRR007, Formal #IRR002 and Passion #IRR06
Want 2 Scrap: Nestaboard Fluer de Lis Rectangles and Nestabling Fluer de Lis WhiteP/Blk P 
Other Supplies: Tuxedo Black Ink by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko and Silhouette

When I saw the little chipboard Fleur de Lis Nestaboard, and matching Nestabling, I knew that I wanted to include them in a layout somehow. I had this adorable little iPhone pic of my two little girls being quiet and sweet together, and have wanted to scrap another version of it for awhile.
To start, I cropped the photo so that it was slightly larger than the background of the largest of the Fleur de Lis Nestaboard. Then I added the matching Fleur de Lis Nestabling, but instead of adding the separate pearls to the middles, I used the Self Adhesive Pink Pearls in the smallest size. I wanted to bring in another soft color to tie in the die cuts.
For the title, I took the Adore Fancy Chipboard and used my Memento in Tuxedo Black to cover it. This way, I was able to tie together the black pearls from the Nestabling. Then I cut a White Pearl Swirl in a few pieces and added that to the title.

A few of the die cuts, a puzzle piece, and a small piece of the Grace Collection finished off my layout. To make the "heartwarming" die cut show more, I used Glossy Accents on it.
Products Used-
Authentique Paper-Grace Collection: Poised, Foundations, Puzzle Pieces, Paper Crafting Assortment
Want2Scrap-Fleur de Lis Nestaboard, Fleur de Lis Nestabling, Self Adhesive Pink Pearls, Adore Fancy Chipboard
