Happy Friday...yay!  Missy here.  Today I'm sharing my latest layout using Sketch #104 over on the Sketch Blog.  The crazy talented Nicole Nowosad is the Guest Designer of the sketch, and it's awesome for adding lots of long layers.

I pulled out some of the Crate Paper Open Book and Kiss Kiss collections and came up with this soft layout.  I really love the tones of these colors.  I used black & white photos to really make them pop.  My favorite parts of this layout are:  the gold heart vellum, the transparent overlay, and those gorgeous glitter Thickers!

I did add a bit of gesso and watercolors to this, but I didn't go overboard.  I also sprayed a bit of gold Color Shine onto some plastic packaging for a bit more shine.

It doesn't get any better than gold glitter!  I layered a few die cuts here, as well as a rub-on and some stitching.

Lots of things going on here...a flair button from my stash with some tangled thread under it, a gold rub-on, and a lovely acetate die cut to add a bit more green.

This vellum is just's just so pretty and gives the perfect amount of shine.  It did want to warp slightly when it got wet, but my stitching took care of that :)

I hope you are able to play along with the sketch challenge this month!  Go HERE to check it all out!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Missy :)
