Creative Embellishment's March Challenge

Hi all, wanted to share a layout I did for Creative Embellishment's monthly challenge.  Do you know them?  They have gorgeous chipboard, wood veneer, and rubber stamps.  Simply fantastic pieces to add to your collection.  Click right *HERE* to check out their store, and on their name for the challenge.

You have a sketch and a pic for inspiration.  I pulled from both.  Here's the pic and sketch -

and here's my interpretation -

This is a pic from my daughter Desirae's wedding.  That is a font of never ending pics!  She and her maid of honor my niece Samantha were having the "getting ready" pics done.  I used the green and purple from the pic as well as butterflies, no prodding necessary there ;)  I switched up the sketch just a bit with picture orientation and placement.  The chippie is from their vine that I gesso'd sprayed and cut up to tuck in here and there.  I used their awesome title piece in the smaller size, "Isn't She Lovely" That was gesso'd and sprayed as well.

In the bottom right corner is a free printable that I downloaded and printed then fussy cut to tuck into the matting and on the left side are book page and music sheet scraps that I layered as well as a pleated fan that I tucked in.  The flowers are from my stash, the purple Prima roses and the daisy petaloo, the rose I made as well as die cut leaves from the Tattered Leaves die.

    Love your colors here, and the flowers and butterflies just seem to go perfect with the photo. Really like the added touch of the sheet music, it goes perfectly with your title (and the song is now in my head too). The pearls were a nice added touch.
