Paper Stories Dec/Jan sketch....

Hello there peeps...how has everyone's week been so far?  Hope everyone is surviving the heat!

Just a quick post tonight to share a layout for the Dec/Jan sketch challenge at Paper Stories.
This is what I came up with....


Using some fairly old MME papers, 2crafty chipboard and some gorgeous Green Tara flowers that I won from the lovely & generous Eila Sandberg that were purchased from Di Garling's,  Di's Scrapbooks.  Thanks so much Eila!! (and Di) mwahhhh
 
 
And here is the sketch that I rotated 90deg anti-clockwise
 
 
 
And now a few close ups....
 
Here is a close up of 2 of the flowers from Eila...the Apricoty coloured one as well as the white one at the front....love them!  And the 2crafty doily at the base of my cluster
 
 
This piece is the stunning 2crafty Fifi's Flourish...love it!
 
 
And my title
 

And another small cluster with some more MME papers & washi tape along the top.
 

Photos are from The Great Ocean Road....at one of the structures called "London Bridge", but unfortunately, part of the structure collapsed a few years ago.  Hence my title :)
 
Thanks so much for popping by & leaving any comments....muchly appreciated 
Have a good one!  xx
