Birthday Sketch - Make a Wish

Here is my take on the birthday celebrations sketch this month.  I changed it up a little and flipped the sketch on its side to fit in with my portrait photo of Brittany on her 15th birthday.  Decided to use a mix of  Prima Reflections, Prima Madeline for the background and the hand cut letters in my title and also Prima Sweet Fairy for the frame around my photo.  I love Prima papers for fussy cutting and used them here to cut out some of the pretty flowers and butterflies to sprinkle over my page.
Some of my favourite Scrapware chipboard pieces are the doily frames.. just perfect for a girly page and I decided to cover the centre circle piece with the Prima paper to match in with my LO and added the cute present charm which I coloured with Tim Holtz alcohol ink.   The paper behind the photo was sprayed with water and crumpled, then swiped over with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink and framed with some of Tracy's gorgeous rhinestone chain to add a bit of bling.  To finish off my title was made with the hand cut alphas from the Prima paper and some American Crafts Jewellery Box white alphas which wer inked and coated with Inkssentials crackle medium.
I hope my LO inspires you to have a go at our sketch challenge and can't wait to see some fabulous entries in our gallery.
