So Happy Together- GD for CSI Case File #60 alont with 2 Crafty

This is the last layout for our GD at CSI this month sponsored by 2 Crafty.

Here is the Palette for CSI #60

and The Coordinates, which I used on this layout

How I solved the Case:

I used all 5 colors including some from the Coordinates. 
For the EVIDENCE I used: a big flower, heats, birds, layers, drips, and a solid white background
For the TESTIMONY I journaled on a tag about love and used the word love on the page

I used a 2 Crafty Chipboard title "Together" from the summertime chipboard pack. However I was very proud of my amazing find at our local restaurant on Valentine's day. Do you see these coasters below. Well can you spot them on the page. I altered these amazing coasters that I grabbed from the bar at the restaurant. How cool are they. I simply covered them in Gesso and then with a marble mask, covered them in gesso again. Finally I sprayed them in Shimmerz: My Bleeding Heart to make them red.

Materials used:
Bazzil White Cardstock
CSI coordinates #60, Teresa Collins
Crate paper and Prima packaging
Chipboard: 2 Crafty
Flowers: MHC, Prima, Green Tara
Leaves: Prima
Resins: The Trinket Trunk
Gesso, Textured Paste
Shimmerz: My Bleeding Heart

Coasters. doily, pearls
