"Absolutely Fabulous" for Stuck?! Sketches

Here's a sweet little layout I just finished with my June Counterfeit Kit and a couple of other challenges in mind.  That's my little Brenna Bean on her 5th birthday earlier this year.  It was her first real birthday party with friends rather than just family invited, and she was sooooooo excited!  

Even though this page is not fully stacked with embellishments, I really love how it turned out, especially the die cut flowers and the colour combo.

Here's the sketch I used from Stuck?! Sketches:

Wow, I really loved this sketch as soon as I laid eyes on it!

The flowers I made from a Tim Holtz die with various patterned papers and some Stampin' Up brads.  They were made specifically with a challenge from the gang at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog in mind:

Challenge #1:  Patterned Die Cuts:  Use only PATTERNED PAPER to create a layered die cut for your project.

Fun stuff, I love these types of challenges!  This one completely changed the look of my page from what I might have made with pre-made embellishments. 

Anyway, it's late on a Friday night, and I want to get a card made for a little boy's birthday party tomorrow, so I better get at it or I'll be forced to gift cardless (gasp!) or perhaps even buy a card (what?!)
