January Sketch at Handmade by Suzanne

Yay! I have scrapped my first layout for 2012!  Shell has designed a beautiful sketch for Handmade by Suzanne's January Sketch Challenge.  Here is the sketch:
 And here is my example.  I've used an older collection by Kaisercraft called 'Blush'.
A close up of the title and the gorgeous Pink Paislee butterfly.
The big flower and leaves are from Prima and the smaller ones are Green Tara Mini Roses.  The resin birdie is from Prima too and the wooden manequin and Berry Vine are from Kaisercraft.  All products are available from the HBS store.
So, why not give the sketch a go?  There's a $30 store voucher up for grabs and all you have to do is enter, because the winner gets determined by random draw.  Easy! :)
Not sure when I'll be back.  I've still got DH home until next week, so don't know how much scrappy time I'll be able to fit in. :)
Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments! 
Until next time.
