Today, we have a fun this or that challenge at the studio challenges for you!
You have to use at least six lines of these:

polka dots            or            stripes
sequins                or            enamel dots
heart                   or            star
cardstock             or            patterned paper
flowers                or             butterflies
stencil                 or             stamps
stencil                 or             embossing
twine                   or             ribbon
blue                     or             pink
boys                    or             girls

I took my colour-inspiration from CSI:

And a sketch from Stick it down:

I used light yellow cardstock as my background. Then I smudged some gesso onto it and splattered some colors around (distress oxides: cracked pistachio and worn lipstick). The title is cut out with my cameo. Two of my photos fit perfectly into the letters. Then I handstitched around my title and traced the white letters with a black fineliner. 

From the this or that I took:
sequins, heart, cardstock, flowers, stamps, twine, pink and girls!

The stamps are from SF-stamps.
