My Favourite Photo Layout + Card

Hi, I've created this layout to enter this months Once Upon A....Sketch Challenge (Link Found Here) using their sketch as my layout design and this month Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Challenge         (Link Found Here) using their colour palate for my colour choices.
I loved how the sketch had two photos and I had these two photos of my daughter posing silly after a dance concert from a couple of years ago. I'd printed the photos in sepia as the outfit she was wearing was fluorescence pink and yellow and the wall behind her was bright green :)
I chose some gorgeous Marion Smith Design Paper as they when so nicely with the colour palate, and topped the page off with some Scrap FX chipboard and a few flowers.

I used the Prima Brick Wall stencil and modeling paste on the background, then coloured it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Shots and Sprays. I coloured the heart chipboard with embossing powder, and the birds and flower stem chipboard with the Color Shots mixed with Gel Medium.

I sprinkled some glitter and pearls around the page for some sparkle, and added some flowers coloured with the sprays and color shots.

I also made with card at the same time. I went with pretty pink and blue colours, lots of flowers and some lovely chipboard to top it off. I also had some little hands help me add the glitter to this card so a lot more got sprinkled on than I had intended :) Although the photos don't show how sparkly it really is.
