The Dress (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello and welcome to our final challenge for 2014 over at Lets Get Sketchy, can you believe that?!!  This week is the 5th week in December, which means a special challenge to make a monochromatic layout.  I choose to go with pale pink, based on the ribbon on the dress.  

These photos are actually a print out of a dress that Azaria was to wear as a flower girl for our friend's wedding, except that she changed out the pink ribbon for a black ribbon.  I started with the texture paste butterflies, then added pink gelato with a plastic bag and water.  Then I built my layers around the pictures and the Open Book Card.  The layout is made with my October Hip Kit (which I'm trying to kill right now!).

I added a pop of black and gold, but the predominant features are pink.

My final touch was to add the stitched border as the layout was missing something.

Make sure you play along in this final challenge!
