Papercraft Star Aqua Challenge

Hello Paper Crafters,

While I was about looking at some challenges, I found that Papercraft Star had an Aqua Challenge. I've always loved aqua in fact aquamarine is my birthstone I'm a Pisces :), so I knew I wanted to participate. I found some dsp I liked, actually 3 different ones, so instead of choosing only 1 or 2,  I decided to use them all.  With the top layer of dsp I thought I would create a scene. I recently learned a new way to make little rosettes from a fellow Glitter Queen- Dee Slater, thanks Dee! So I made several of them up, daubed them with aqua on the edges and added pearls to the centers. For the leaves I just hand cut the shapes added vein lines with a marker and daubed the edges. The flowers are fun to make, I'm going to have to try some other colors, I love the way they turned out.

My daughter has a softball scrimmage tomorrow morning so I'll be busy watching her play, and my cupboards are bare so we need to do some grocery shopping. Thought I would post this tonight so I don't miss the deadline. Enjoy your weekend!
Thanks for the challenge Papercraft Star!
