The Wedding Cake: Quick Quotes Chiffon collection

Good morning!  Quick Quotes readers, Alicia here today with some fresh new Quick Quotes papers:
The Chiffon collection.  I thought they were a great match for some of my wedding photos.

I used many simple layers to create this stunning layout.  The base is a full 12x12 sheet of Chiffon 104 paper and coordinating partial sheet of Chiffon 103 paper.  I used a border punch to cut two strips of Chiffon 101 paper's solid side that I tucked behind the partial sheet.  The special part of this layout is the ribbon I used at the seems of the paper and borders.  It is from a spool that I actually used in my wedding.  We used it to tie our rings.

Next I die cut some mats to layer behind the photos.  I used some Quick Quotes die cut pieces that were in my DT package.  Behind those I layered just a torn strip of Chiffon 105 paper, I just love the "writing".  On top of the die cuts I layer some chipboard and wooden embellishments.

The title is Cricut cut from the same wonder Chiffon 105 paper, I thought it looked best on the solid paper.  Finally, I added more chipboard pieces and more die cuts, for a finishing touch vines intertwined with some flourish pearls.
