Brothers

Welcome to the second day of our brand new Beary Sweet Challenge with this great sketch for us all to play with! I loved seeing Lori's lovely elephant card yesterday and I am so excited to have her join our team permanently!

My project using the sketch is as 12 x 12 layout using these great Windsor papers from SEI. I thought the colors perfectly complemented the sepia pictures of my boys together.



I wanted to include many of the beautiful patterns from this paper line and so I pieced together the background of my layout instead of using just one large paper. I left off the flowers in the top left hand corner as this is a boyish layout (although I do think these papers are not what you would call traditional "boy" papers-- just goes to show you can use anything!). So instead of the flowers, I used a chipboard flourish that I first inked and then spritzed with Glimmer Mist. I really love how the whole thing came together and I will definitely be using these papers again! (I'm thinking beautiful for fall wedding cards!)

Supplies used:

SEI Windsor line Designer papers (on sale right now, check out the incredible prices!)
Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock-- Shitake (base)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink-- Vintage Photo
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-- Sun Sisters
Pink Paislee EXPRESSIONS Whimsies Cardstock Alphabet Stickers - Chocolate
Martha Stewart border punch
Colorbox Fluid Chalk-- Chestnut Roan

I can't wait to see what you make with the sketch so get those entries coming!
