A layout with the Autumn Rose Kit

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is this week!?!?! I have to say this year went by fast! I want to wish all my scrappy friends a Happy Thanksgiving!
I'd like to share my last project with the Swirlydoos November kit, Autumn Rose. This kit was so lovely with all the lush colors and romantic feel. I love to collect vintage images and wanted to use this one wit the kit, romantic and vintage! I heavily distressed two layers of pattern paper for that worn aged look. Then misted and stamped randomly. Once that was all dry I added some molding paste using a Prima mask. From there I just started adding embellishments. I've designed the butterflies and you kind find them HERE.
My layout was based of the November sketch over at Once Upon a Sketch. I'm honored to say my Etsy Shop is sponsoring a prize to a lucky winner.
 Thanks for taking the time!

I just loved this kit! It has beautiful rich colors. Krissy has an eye for the Victorian elegance feel. She has match up the perfect embellishments to make gorgeous pages or projects! 
For this page I went with the lighter shades. Using the green burlap trim, that came in the main kit, I made the rolled roses. The trim has wire it in so it was easy to roll and keep shape. I used a Prima Butterfly mask and molding paste for the background. I love to  heavy distress my edges with multiple layers. This page has 4 layers! I made the banner out of scraps and just glued it to the top.

 I just want to note that this page looks 100% better in person. It was really hard to photograph the background I created with molding paste and mist. Then the diecut paper has, I guess, a lacquer. So the shine didn't come out right. And no sun makes for a ugly photo! Sorry!

 This is my take on the monthly sketch. I love to fill up my pages. So I did multiple layers of distressing and machine stitching. I also used some molding paste and a Prima mask for the background. I digitally created the butterflies to match the kit. You can find them at my Etsy shop along with the Trumpet Stick Pin.

 Here is the lovely sketch created by our sketch artist Beggahuna.
