It's a Scraplift Challenge @ Love to Scrap

Time for Challenge #28 at Love to Scrap!  This time we want you to scraplift at least three elements from Cathy's page below, and use them on your project.  (Note: Your project doesn't have to be a scrapbook page, it can be a card, canvas, altered item, etc.)   You can see Cathy's page for the scraplift inspiration here.
For my page, I lifted the circle, flowers, gemstone flourish, single photo, and border strips.
Papers: Carte Bella; Lace: Maya Road; Twill: May Arts; wooden alphas: Studio Calico; rubons: Fancy Pants; Tags and photo corners: Authentique;  Flowers: Digi image from Fred She Said
The flowers are the "3 Doodled Blossoms" digi stamp from Fred She Said, one of our sponsors for this challenge.  I colored the flowers with regular colored pencils, then blended them with Gamsol to get a soft watercolored look.  The digi image has the three flowers together on stems, but I cut them apart and layered them on the die cut circle.  That's a great thing about digi images - you can resize them, cut them apart, and color them to match your project! 
We have two sponsors for our scraplift challenge:  Dr. Digi's House of Stamps (offering 2 images of choice) and Fred She Said (offering $10 gift certificate to their online store).  Link up your project to the Love to Scrap challenge blog for a chance to win one of these great prizes! 
I'm also entering this in the Craft Your Passion challenge to use soft pretty pastel colors on a project and the Open Minded Crafters challenge to scrap Easter or pastel colors.
