October Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share the October Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store.  Here is the sketch.  Hope you like it!
And my example using the beautiful Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics' collection.  The photos are of my friend's gorgeous little girl, taken a few years ago. :)
The chipboard circle is the 'Small Circle Flourish' from Blue Fern Studios.  I gave it a coat of gesso and then coloured it up using various inks
The background texture was achieved using the 'Bubble' stencil from Tim Holtz and some texture paste.  The flowers are a mixture of Prima and Green Tara Cheery blossoms and mini roses.
Another little cluster in the corner.  The leaves are 2Crafty 'Summer Leaf Stems' chipboard.
That's all for today.  Please check out the Gallery for more awesome inspiration from the rest of the DT.  And then play along!  You have until the end of October to get your entries in.  There's an awesome $40 store voucher up for grabs with free postage and the winner gets determined by random draw, so anyone can win!  I would love to see your entries. :)
Thank you for popping by.  Hope you are having a great week.
Until next time!
