I really enjoyed this weeks challenge @ Stuck On U Sketches...thanx to Sandi for choosing such a lovely sketch. I decided to work a bit out of my comfort zone and create something somewhat monochromatic. The papers are the wedding stack that WM carries. I used my Martha Stewart Border punch around the edge of the second layer. The rectangular piece was created by typing a silly little story about Carsyn on white card stock. My frame was cut with the scalloped square on A Child's Year and then cutting the center out with the square from Plantin Schoolbook. I added white pearl paint around the edges.I love to pick up little charms when I see them...these were found at Michael's in the bridal aisle, the are tied with a bit of lace ribbon. The birds are from the new Winter Woodland cart....cut in both white and grey so I could alternate the colors on each bird.Dream was cut from the Home Accents cart and stickled...wish you could see the glitter...I also used Plantin to cut the hidden journaling tag and added some bling and ribbon. The feathers were from my stash and the pearls once again from the bridal aisle at M's. This flower was created by using the snowflake cut from Home Accents. It is the image that has a heart shaped edge and I cut 2 each of 3, 2 1/2, 2 and 1 1/2 inch layers and staggered them as I glued them together. Then I just scrunched and scrunched until I got the effect I wanted....a few stickles, feathers and pearls to enhance....The leaves are from A Child's Year....stretched in DS....(Nanne's touch) I also chalked them and added pop dots. I hope you will head on over to Stuck On U Sketches to see what the other ladies have come up with as well as take the challenge yourself...I know you will have fun!
