Follow Your Dreams: January Sketch Challenge for Blue Fern Studios

Happy 2016! 

I am so excited to be on the Blue Fern Studios design team this year and would love to share my first work here with you for their January sketch challenge, come join in for a chance to win!

Here is the gorgeous sketch to work with:

For my base page I used the beautiful Allegro sheet from Frolic.
The journaling cards came from Montage.

Here you can see a close up of the beautiful Royal Monarch chipboard butterfly. I have used the beautiful Honey and Cotton Candy Imagine Ink embossing powders to color it.  You can also see the Essential Textures stamp used in Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and the Texture Circles stamp in Walnut Stain distress ink.

I layered up lots and lots of the journalling cards from Montage on my layout, I just love the details they give to the layering behind the image.  I have also used the Fabulous arrow from Arrow Words embossed in Honey Imagine Ink Embossing Powder .

I just love the vintage ballerina on the layout, you will probably see me using a lot of vintage images as they are a favorite of mine! I have used a few pieces of the Turkish Bits tucked into the layout, again embossed with Honey and Cotton Candy Imagine Ink embossing powders.

I hope you like my layout, I had a lot of fun creating this!
