We Scrap Sketchy Saturdays

Every Saturday the Inspiration Team at We Scrap posts a wonderfully creative sketch. This weeks sketch by the very talented Sarah Nolan, featured a single photo and lots of room for creative licence!
Here's the Sketch:

And here's what I made:

I used some of my recently received contest goodies from Two Peas and Authentique. I layered the Splendid collection and sewed like crazy in a contrasting thread. I added a large flourish from American Crafts after sanding it and inking it. I did the same with the title which are some older blue letters. The frame around the photo is also American Crafts and I thought it matched their eyes!  A few Martha Stewart punched butterflies and VOILA!

I should mention that I put the cream piece with the journalling through my printer and added the text in brown. I did a few practice sheets for placement. I hope you'll let me know what you think!

Until next time, be sure to stop in say "Hi!" at the WeScrap forum and pop in on Sarah..you will be inspired!

Keep doing what you love!
