Stuck on U Sketches!!

I'm SO excited to announce to you all that I have been chosen to be on the design team at Stuck on 
You Sketches!  This is the first design team I've had the pleasure to be on, and what could be better for me than a sketch one!  I LOVE sketches!  This is the sketch they sent me for their bi-weekly sketch and,......

this is my take on it!

In order to use the photos I wanted [she is my cousin's sweet daughter] I had to flip the sketch so Madelyn was swing into the layout, and not out! I used some more of my Prima pattern paper from the Fairy Flora line.

I did some pleat folding in the upper left corner to reveal some making I did behind it, and embellished the folds with purple pearls and a purple gemmed brad.

 This is a close up of some of the flowers I made out of card stock and some of the Prima pattern paper, accenting with a pearl in the middle. I added a cardstock butterfly and use a small piece of a pearl strand intertwined .

I wanted to follow this sketch fairly closely and wanted to add th photo in the circle, so I made this Gerber daisy and used Madelyn's photo, in black and white, for its center.

This is a side view of the flowers to show you the dimension.

 I did a bit of misting with pink and teal Smooch ink.  I made a vine with purple rose buds and some curly tendrils, and nestled in my other handmade flowers and pearl strand .

For the sub title I wrote the words on cardstock and cut them out and inked the edges.

I did some hand stitching on the sides of the strip of pattern paper to give it a bit of punch.

                                                I used pink glitter letters for the title.

Thanks for looking at my layout and be ready for more scrappy goodness coming for Stuck on U Sketches!
