Simply Stampin' Challenge Week 7

This week the challenge over at Simply Stampin' is a sketch challenge. Do pop over and see what the design team created and hopefully you will be inspired to join in too.

I love working with sketches as they cut out half the work!! Using this week's sketch I created a scrapbook layout instead of a card. I turned the sketch on its side and moved the sentiment to suit the layout.

To make the flowers I used the Faux Mother of Pearl technique by adding Frost White Shimmer paint to white glossy cardstock using a piece of scrunched up cling film. Once dry I used a brayer to add Rose Red ink over the top. I then cut the flowers using the Sizzix Fun Flowers Die and layered on top with stampin dimensionals.
The little girl in the photograph is my niece Abigail.
