Gorgeous color combo, but very challenging!! I tried a few things, and finally decided to go with the black background for this layout....
My Evidence: hearts, white space, and stripes
My Testimony: Inspiration Words: before
I used papers from Kaisercraft's Marigold Collection, My Mind's Eye, Stella & Rose and Lost & Found II, as well as some scraps from my stash. Each stripe was distressed with DI in Vintage Photo. The Cardstock is from the Black Magic Collection from Coredinations. The chipboard 'Love This' (top of pic) is from UMWOW, and was first gessoed (Liquitex Black), and then embossed with black embossing powder.
The flowers are from Petaloo. I took apart a vine, misted it with Lindy's Stamp Gang's Flat Fabio in Toto's Tornado Black, then reassembled the vine, with different Petaloo flowers. There's a bit of chipboard (orange) peeking out from behind the flowers, also from UMWOW.
The hearts were gessoed (Golden), misted with LSG's Hag's Wart Orange, and then embossed with LSG's Jack O'Lantern Orange. Part of my mat, was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. My sentiment was written with Chitchat stickers from Tim Holtz, and reads 'Before you, there was no inspiration'.
