Scrap Africa Sketch No. 21

I can't believe it's Spring already!  Hope you had a lovely sunny day in your part of the woods and a Happy Fathers Day to all the special dads here in Australia.
Well,  a new month brings a new challenge at Scrap Africa.  Here is the sketch for September.
And here is my example.  The photo is of my aunt (my mum's sister) on her wedding day in 1955.  I have used the gorgeous Prima 'Lyric' collection.
 A close up of my cluster of Prima flowers and wooden embellishments.
 A beautiful silky rose and a heart charm with a short line of pearls underneath. :)
Another little close up. :)
And my title.  I have rubbed some gesso over my chipboard word and then added some colour using my pink and brown ink pads. :) 
I hope you get a chance to play along with us.  For more inspiration on how to interpret the sketch, visit the Scrap Africa Blog to see the DT's beautiful creations.
That's all I have for this lovely Spring day... oops, I meant night. Thank you so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful week!
Until next time.

Thinking of you and sending best wishes your way. :)
