Once upon a time

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week. Today I'm sharing a new layout that I've done for the sketch #52 challenge over at Keeping the best... challenge blog. When I seen the sketch I loved it and knew that I had to play along. Here is the beautiful sketch designed by Svetlana Austin...
 And this is the layout I created...
For this layout I've used Prima's Romantique collection papers. Once again I used two different Martha Stewart border punches to go around the edging of my background. I think it gives the paper just a bit more shabby chic feel which I like, especially when you punch a few curves in the paper. For my paper doilies I used Martha Stewart corner punches around circles that I had cut with my Creative Memories circle cutter. I then inked all my edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage photo. I used Stampendous embossing powder in Pearl for my chipboard, then applied Stickles in Fruit Punch with my finger for a little glam. I have some close-ups...

 The crochet doily, antique lace, flowers, and ribbon are all from my stash. The pink pearls are by Zva, which I cut apart to place randomly in my clusters.
I'd also like to mention that Keeping the best is currently having a DT call. You can check the requirements and necessary details using the link.Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your time and comments very much. I really enjoyed sharing with you today. Have a great day!
