Swirlydoos Sketch Challenge

I am so excited!  I just joined Swirlydoos Kit Club!  Since around November I've been researching, lurking, examining the various kit clubs and their kits, then starting the process over again.  I finally made my choice two weeks ago.  I really love the kits, and I love the atmosphere and wonderful gals there.  They host various challenges and offer wonderful comradery.  

I made a layout based on a sketch for the April kit.  This kit is gorgoeus!  It's called Tiffany and features the gorgeous papers from Authentique's line called Classic Elegance.  Wow, gorgeous papers! Here's a pic of the paper pad -

They are double-sided and amazing.  We also got some awesome Ingvild Bolme resins, lovely bling, pretty Petaloo flowers and an mdf wooden frame.  Just packed with awesomeness!   Here's thebeautiful  sketch -

Now, I usually don't do white space, but I did here and followed the sketch rather closely here.  The 
pic is my grand'd Aelyn from, you guessed it, Deisrae's wedding, lol!

I distressed the edges, inked with walmut stain, crimped the paper on the top left and put a small doily there.  Matted it on the pretty blue ombre page amd added a butterfly.  Down in the right corner, I used some mod-podge then added tissue paper on it slightly scrunched, stamped, put some strips of washi tape over the tissue then misted.  The flourish is from my stash of Tim Holtz grunge board pack that I got from QVC oh about 8 years ago!  Inked it with distress ink in black soot and then misted it with Lindy's.  The pretty rhinstone bling is from the kit, I cut them from this lovely large strip.  The crescent of bling is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by :)

    Beautiful layout. I love the creased effect around the pictures, the splash of bling and that little butterfly pushing down the layers in the top corner!
