Keeping the Best - sketch #52

Hey there lovelies...how is everyone enjoying their long weekend??
I am loving it ....in fact, I think it should be law that there's a long weekend EVERY weekend...lol
Wishful thinking there though, eh!

I'm back to share another layout I created last night for Sketch #52 which was created by Svetlana Austin at Keeping the Best

Using some of the gorgeous Kaisercraft Pickled Pear collection, Manor House Creations flowers, and of course, some 2crafty chipboard......


 
And this is the sketch....
 
 
 
 
 
And now for some close ups....
 

Here you can see where I've used a leftover piece of 2crafty Fencing Wire Panel
And that little camera?  That is a stamp that I scored at a Typo shop while down in melbourne...and, I had a little experiment with heat embossing it...came up pretty good!!  Thanks go to Lizzy Hill for all her helpful tips & advice she gave me!! :) :) :)
 
 

 This close up is showing one of the gorgeous 2crafty Bird baths...complete with cute little bird :)
 
 

My title <3
 
 
 
And this is another 2crafty chipboard piece....Graceful Butterfly , that I also had fun embossing!
 
 
 
I'm not sure if you can see them too well here...but there are a couple of skeleton leaves at the bottom of the large Manor House Creations flower....they were a creamy/natural kind of colour, but I misted them in a grey/black mist to help them stand out  & to fit in with the colours of my layout better.
 
 
I really enjoyed working with this gorgeous sketch.
 
Thanks so much for dropping by to see my work :)
Have a great day everyone...xx
