August 16th Sketch Challenge at Stuck On U Sketches

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week so far! It's that time again for another awesome sketch challenge at Stuck On U Sketches. This sketch has been provided by our lovely Leah Schaeffer.
So come on over and take a look at the rest of the design teams wonderful creations! This challenge will run from Aug 16th-29th.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my interpretation:

This is a pic of hubby and me. I just loved how these colors looked together. The papers are from the kit of the month at swirlydoos which included papers from IOD and Creative Imaginations. 

Here you can see a closeup of the chippy treatment and also the stencil in the top left corner. I used some light modeling paste here. I also took apart this black flower and used it as a bottom layer to the pink prima flower. 

I used these pink brads, distressed the edges with chalk ink and did some hand stitching. 

Here is another closeup of my flower cluster. I painted some of these flowers with white gesso to accent the edges.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful week!
