Sarah-using Kaisercraft Chantruese Collection

Paper Patch Crafts is having a layout contest using the Sketchy Thrusday sketch. I decided I would do the layout using my daughters photo of when she was about 5 years old. I selected the Kaisercraft Chantruese papers: Tremolo, Vivo, Eco, and Stacoto papers to do my layout in. I did my borders using the EK Abstract Flower and Deco Scallop border punches. I did use the Chestnut Roan Ink to do my distressing with.

My flowers were made from left over scrap papers and the Tim Holtz Flower Die. I inked the edges and used some of the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze to make them stiff and shiny with glitter. The centers are made using my I Top.

I fussy cut one of the small birds from the tag sheet, added some American Craft ribbon and ribbon brad to my ribbon. My looped ribbon was made using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. All you do is make a small loop and staple it into place and do a repeat till you have the length you want. I always use a scrap of paper to staple my ribbon to.
Here is the sketch that we were to go by. I just love Sketchy Thrusday sketches.
