Embrace {Sketchabilities Sketch #72}

We have a beautiful and interesting sketch up at Sketchabilities this week:

Here's the page I made. I started an album for my mom for Mother's Day of some favorite family pictures, and this one's for that album. The album is going to have pictures with quotes. The picture's of my mom and Gram on Mom's wedding day.

I flipped the sketch horizontally. I used BasicGrey's Lily Kate, and the blue background paper is from BasicGrey's Oh, Baby! collection.

Here are a few details. The paisley designs in the LilyKate paper are so pretty and I cut them out and added some pearls to the flower centers.

The frame is my Maya Road, and I mixed a couple of different greens to get a color to match the papers. The leafy branch is a Cheery Lynn die cut, as is the yellow doily behind the frame. I used glittery brown brads for the Old Prima flower centers.

 Here's another picture  showing another flower, I think by Recollections, and tucked underneath is an SEI brad that I thought worked perfectly with this BasicGrey collection.

Go check out the awesome work by the rest of the Sketchabilities team. I love all the different interpretations of the sketch. My page is a pretty literal translation.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page today!
