Keeping The Best reveal

Hey there! Can you believe that it's April already? A quarter of the year is behind us already. And for me this has been a busy, busy Monday. This is my second post for the day, so if you're here for the Color Me Scrappy  challenge please scroll down. Today I have a page to share that I've done for the sketch #57 reveal at Keeping The Best.
 I used the January Kit from Scraps of Darkness (a mix of Pink Paislee Portfolio and Basic Grey Serenade papers) and some things from my stash for this page. Lots of layers on this one. I did some stamping on the background with the Prima stamps that came in the kit. I masked on the background with a stencil and black gesso, then aded a few black seed beads for a little added interest. The Dusty Attic chippies were sprayed with Black Magic by Tattered Angels then I also added a few seed beads and Black Diamond Stickles for a little more sparkle.
 The flowers are a mix of Prima and Petaloo. The leaves were made using Spellbinders foliage dies and Basic Grey paper. The pretty blue stick pin is from Prima and the wooden clock is by Recollections.

And here is the fabulous sketch...
