A Knight to Remember

I have a layout today that I used the new Cricut Art Philosophy again. I absolutely love this cart. It is so versatile! I can't wait for you to see what just one cut can do to make a complete layout. This is my beautiful daughter that just turned 17. My  where have the years gone?
I cut the background top note at 10 1/4" and the blue one at 10 3/4" to create a border. I cut it again at 3" to create the journaling block. Can you believe 3 cuts of the same shape made this complete layout?!

 The picture just do not do this layout justice. The bling is so sparkly and pretty. The paper is a glitter paper from DCWV Linen pack. The flower is made with some blue silk cut in circle shapes and then heating the edges to cause them to curl up. Layer them up and you have a gorgeous flower. A couple of feathers and a hat pin to finish it off. I used a bling buckle and crystal swirls from Hobby Lobby. The ribbon is some from a swap so I'm not sure the brand.
I hope you enjoy my layout today as much as I enjoyed creating it. I think it turned out as beautiful as my lovely daughter and her knight in shining armor.
I'm submitting this to the My Craft Spot Design Team. Be sure to check out the blog for great challenges, terrific stamps, and gorgeous crinkle ribbon!
