Surprise Sketch!

I don't know if you recall but I was Guest Designer for The Studio Challenges last month and the page that I created for their button challenge was made into a sketch for this month's sketch challenge, which was a total surprise for me! So of course I wanted to have a go at creating another page but make it totally different to the original.
This is a reminder of my page that inspired the sketch.
Here is the sketch that the talented Valerie created from my page - what a great reproduction.
And here is the page I made using the sketch.
As you can see I flipped the sketch to accommodate the portrait photo of my eldest daughter
I also really wanted to use this OLD sheet of Dream Street paper as a background, it was the only sheet in the range that I had and it would certainly give a different 'feel' to the page if I used it.
I needed a large accent piece and my dear friend Jackie came to the rescue with this main flower which I think she said it was from Papermania. I added some more flowers punched from assorted scraps and everything on my page has inked edges which is something I haven't done for years!
My title was made up of these cute banners that were also given by a friend, (thanks Sue).
In place of the buttons were more punched flowers with brads for the center.
I just had to keep the stitched circle the same as I love hand stitching on my pages when I get time!
Well there you are two totally different pages from the same design but which one is your favourite?

I really hope you find the time to play along with the sketch, all the details and the Studio Challenges Design Team's take on it can be found HERE.

Thanks for stopping in and saying hello. 
Until next time. xx
