Lori Whitlock June Blog Hop: Echo Park Happy Summer Layout

Hello there!  The Lori Whitlock team is back with our monthly blog hop.  You should be arriving here from Corri's blog or if you are just joining in, you can start from the beginning at Lori's blog.  :)

For my project today I pulled out Lori's newest collection for Echo Park called Happy Summer.

I used the Hello Spring Wreath as the jumping off point for my design.  I first cut it out as it is in one solid layer from the green paper and then duplicated the shame and used my knife tool to cut apart the flowers and extra berry sprigs so that I could cut more from extra colors without wasting too much paper.  

To add a little more interest I also cut flowers from the Box Card Mason Jar Bouquet file, inked the edges with my distress inks and layered them with foam tape.  Some glossy accents for my red berries and enamels dots and buttons for my flower centers helped me finish off my wreath.
