Sketch Challenge at Scrapbooker's Paradise

Good Morning everyone! Another cool, cloudy day in the Foothills, what a summer it's been!  Rain, rain, and more rain.  But we're warming the day up over at Scrapbooker's Paradise with a new sketch challenge that is being hosted by Selena.

Selena Cantafio

I chose to flip this sketch, as the photos I was working with were vertical ones.

For a period of time this summer, our garage door would have many beautiful white moths on it in the morning, and my granddaughter was totally entranced with them.  She would hold them in her hands and chat with them as if they were long lost friends.  She was in a magical world of her own, and that's why I had to go back to this paper line, Enchanted Garden by KasierCraft, to do this layout!

To make the border, I cut the diamond shape out with a craft knife, and rolled each section back using the handle of a paintbrush to get a nice smooth roll.  

Some backing paper was placed behind and then I cut a Cheery Lynn doily in quarters and tucked it inside.

You'll have fun with this sketch, so come on over to Scrapbooker's Paradise and give the challenge a try.  You don't have to have a blog to enter and you can use whatever supplies you like.  You will find the instructions, near the bottom of the challenge, here.

While you're there, check out my teammates' projects they've done - in a word - AWESOME!!

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used:
Rose Ribbon from my stash (Several pretty colours can be found here.)
Flowers & stick pins from my stash
Zva Pearl Flourish which I cut in half.
