SOUS Sketch Challenge: A Perfect Fit

I have great news! I have been selected to be a Team Designer for Die Cuts on the Stuck on You blog. I am so thrilled and am working on my first project this weekend.  Can't wait to get it out there for you. It's going to be built for fun.  They have another layout Sketch Challenge going on this week.  I found it as the perfect opportunity to scrap pictures I took back in the Spring.  I am running behind. 



I used Teresa Collins Fabrications line for the papers and fussy cut the flowers that take the place of the circle in the sketch.   I also reversed the page horzontally for the pictures layed better that way with the big flowers for the order I wanted them in.  I made the brads using my I-Top tool in both small and large.  I then inked the edges in Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Barn Door.  I put gesso over the black flower for it was stark. I then ran some blue shimmers over it and then gold to soften it up a bit more and have it blend with the colors on the page.  I used the Wildflower Punch around the Page border punch by Martha Stewart for the solid color in the background in a shimmery cardstock.  The title was cut using Tim Holtz strip alpha die called Market Place.
