Sketch Challenge Anyone?

A Cherry on Top hosts a Becky Fleck sketch challenge every week or so.  I really liked this week's sketch using one picture and a mix of patterned papers.

I planned to use a black and white photo so I decided to be a little bold with the papers although I ended up not using the cut apart sheet.

I trimmed the papers and arranged them to match the sketch. I love how the green is popping against the black and white arrow patterned paper. I inked all the edges with black ink to define them a little bit.  

I decided to use pink as the accent color and added washi tape for the paper strips in the sketch then added some die cuts, that great cork sticker, enamel dots and some twine.  

I was trying to make myself like the green "white" space on the layout so I could call it done.  It feels busy and I kept thinking my eyes needed a place to rest but I found that space was distracting.  Then all of a sudden I realized I can put the title there!  

I used glittery thickers and a Heidi Swapp word and love that it's both sparkly and graphic.  I didn't have any As left so I made one with an inverted V and a piece of a number I will never use.  

Now it's done!    

Here are some close ups of the embellishment clusters.
