Sketch Challenge at Stuck On U Sketches

Happy Halloween Everyone!
Here is another awesome sketch challenge at Stuck On U Sketches. This sketch will run from Oct 26th-Nov 8th. I just loved, loved this sketch and I hope you like my interpretation.  It is a picture of my fur baby COZMO. He is a gentle giant, who looks really scary but is the most gentlest and spoiled of beasts.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my layout:

I used papers from last years Authentique Afterglow collection and Pink Paislee House of Tree collection. I did a lot of distressing, layering, and some hand stitching. 

Here is a closeup of the flower cluster. These flowers are from prima, petaloo, and kaisercraft. The chipboard is from Dusty Attic bracket frame set. I colored it with acrylic paint and stamped it with embossing powders from lindy's stamp gang in cleopatra's copper.

And here's another closeup of the corner in the bottom left. I thought the die was perfect for this layout. "Fantastic terrors never felt before", I'm sure this is what people feel when they see my scary looking doggy. HAHA!
