November Counterfeit Kit

Here is this month's counterfeit kit.
It's the October 2018 Citrus Twist Kit, Little Things 





There are lots of beautiful pastels there and 2 main colours standing out blues and yellows.

************
Despite it being November here in Australia, we are having solid rain for days on end and the weather is decidedly dull. Apologies for the darkness of the photos.

Papers
I've followed the colour ideas mainly however there are overlapping themes.

I started with the blues. Mine are deeper inn colour on the whole.
The paper on the left resembles the 4th from the left in the kit.

Next, my yellows with a hint of pastel pinks, just like the kit.
There are florals and stars, just like the kit.

I also have 2 window cardstocks, white and blue. I will add other cardstock as needed

I added vellums in co-ordinating colours as I have a big stock of it.
This will be mainly used for matting, it looks bright but will blend in I'm sure.


 Alphas and embellishments.

My alphas are a combination of reds, navy(Ruby Rock-it) and pastels . 
I will choose which ones suit each layout or card as I go along.
(sorry for the photo quality)

I treated myself to these cute animal buttons

Lastly, my embellishments.

Lisa requested lots of "bling" so I've added pearls and rhinestones.



Here's the order of the blog hop.

Ha ha! Love the bling add ins! Great kit Julene and I like the fact that you picked out the two main colours to base your own kit on. It's a lovely mix of products and I think you are going to get some great pages from it - as always!

I think I used to have that piece of vellum that looks like a partial circle...I wonder if it is still around here...I love the papers that you have included - I would definitely have fun playing with your kit!

I'm seriously green with envy over those blue papers - especially the Sassafras one. Nicely curated kit! Enjoy.

I've never seen windowed cardstock before! Will be watching to see what happens with those. The whimsical animal buttons are totally adorable. I heard it's warming up fast over there so hopefully your dreary days are nearing a close. Scrap on!
