Scrapping Outback - June challenge

Did you see the challenge over at Scrapping Outback?

This is it - 

Did you know, one of my favourite colours is GREEN?
...and I love Mint too!!
Our niece sent some photos of her new Daughter, Sienna - so beautiful - and this was one of them...she is so peaceful...

Technically I have disqualified myself by not starting with white cardstock but that's okay ;)
It's actually a sheet of Blue Fern Studios "Ombre Dreams' (Gingers Dream, for those playing along at home!) I used the backing card from the tag pack of Julie Nuttings - has a finish which is great for wetting and dripping colour to pool...and then I polished it with a paper towel.
I spritzed the Prima crochet edge pieces in Tim Holtz 'Cracked Pistachio' - so pretty! While I had the sprays out, I also sprayed with Lindys Stamp Gang 'Bells of Ireland Green' and 'Bucaneer Bronze' and Memories Mist 'Amaretto' - a bit of everything here and there!
The Scrapmatts Bracket frames were covered in 'Pine Needles' crackle paint - they dried really a bit dark so after it was adhered to the layout I sprayed some Dylusions 'White Linen' (it is the best WHITE spray) Everything is inked in Versamagic 'Jumbo Java' (some would say, 'the' best brown!)
A little layering with pre-made banners (It's so easy, its almost cheating?) and finished embellishing with a few Manor Hose Creation flowerss, and a couple I picked up at Tj's Scrapping with Style.

Sienna has a bunch of older Brothers and Sisters who adore her - lucky!!
