Heartfelt- Peaceful Lilac Layered Circles

Good morning!
I have used the gorgeous umbrella today on the cover
of this circle layered card.
I so love the Lilac collection and this upside down umbrella 
is one of my favorite images!!
And there's that sweet cottage...LOVE it don't you?

OMGosh this paper is so gorgeous as well!

The large Lilac stem with all the little single 
blossoms on it.

Card size: 6 X 6” Using the circles in each page as a template, cut 2 pieces of decorative paper for each page with the appropriate sized circle opening.  Glue tunnel book together and glue each panel to the front and back matching circle openings.  Make a white circle frame for each page, each side of the page.  Starting at the front, glue Decorative Medallion (die cut from white) onto the top lavender frame (it fits perfectly) and add a string of pearls to the top edge of die.  Decorate bottom with a stamped, die cut and colored umbrella and blossoms (stamped in black) plus extra blossoms (stamped with Grape Jelly Memento).  Next page is decorated with large Lush Lilac and butterflies (stamped n black) along with extra blossoms (stamped in Grape Jelly). The back of page 2 is decorated with white fence and Delicate Border die cut, the scroll and Woodsy Critter birds.  Page 3 is decorated with long and short Lilac Sprays and white fence.  The back of page 3 is decorated with 2 small tags.  Page 4 is decorated with 2 small lilac branch clusters and the Lush Lilac and Umbrella spray (stamped in black) and extra blossoms stamped with Grape Jelly, I used the carnation in place of the other flower in that spray.  The back of page 4 is decorated with blossoms from Rain Boots and Blossoms and a large butterfly.  Page 5 is decorated with another white Decorative Medallion and pearls plus a large and small Lilac spray with extra blossoms at the bottom right.
Sponge glue randomly on paper where flowers are on each page front and back and glitter as you go.  Sponge glue on all blossoms and glitter then add a gold Prill to each blossom center.  Add purple rhinestones to butterfly heads on purple butterflies.  Edge both Decorative Medallion dies with pearls.  Add dyed ribbon to tags.

Thanks for visiting today!!

Romans 8:35, 37 New Living Translation (NLT)

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?  37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
Nothing can take us from God's hand no matter what we go through.  He is with us, seeing us through and working on our behalf.  He may not take us out of a situation but He provides a way through it (sometimes we make our own situation, don't we?) He doesn't always take us out of it because we must learn something and we come out the other side shining like gold.  Sometimes the lesson is just to learn to lean on Him for our everything!
No matter what happens, I will trust Him.
