Me and My Girls

Sketchabilities Challenge 119.  As usual, the sketch was lovely and just called to be worked with. Here it is:

The picture is from a summer birthday celebration in October 2012 of my daughters and I. My biggest challenge in this LO was the use of colours because for me, they're not colours I'm comfortable with. I'm happy with the layering (especially the framing of the photo) and the stamping/inking of the background.

Papers: We R Memory Keepers Sunshine Sherry and Sandra, Bazzill black and unnamed colour
Stamps and Inks: SU Gorgeous Grunge, SU Beautifully Baroque, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Soot Noir and Crushed Olive.
Tools: SU Square Framelits, SU Baroque embossing folder, SU Decorative label punch, Martha Stewart lace punch.
Other: lace scrap, black felt, paper doily, Kaisercraft wooden flourish, MME Smile enamel dots, Francheville Savoir Faire designer brads, Sunshine in my Soul alphabet and word sticker sheet, Green Tara flower, dimensionals
