Life is God's Novel...Let Him Write It

I have wanted to do a monochromatic layout for awhile. It happens that it was a challenge at Treasured Scrapbooking so I made this yesterday. My Bestie's birthday is Wednesday and I am going to give this to her as one of her presents. I used a piece of stripped cardboard for the base = then gesso'd it so it would be white. I added a piece of KI Memories sheers over the cardboard.
The white poinsettas on the left are from Michaels. I made a lace bow for the center. Added some Prima Jewels below it and a wooden Prima flower to the center of the bow. Then took a Prima packaging sheet - gesso'd it and covered it with Martha Stewart Glitter. That is used for the journaling base. In the right corner is a Heidi Swapp decal. I added some more Prima flowers and then Heidi Swapp chipboard letters and American Craft silver thickers to complete the quote.
