Magenta Challenge - March 2013 (Sketch)

Hello crafty friends, are you enjoying your week so far?

For a long time, I have been holding onto a piece of very beautiful paper from Magenta, the Pleasures Collection name Delicate Stripes; I want to use it for a layout to showcase a special photo.  And finally I used it for the March Challenge over at the Magenta Blog.  It's a sketch, like this:

And here's my layout:

I really treasure the photo (of my two sisters and myself) very much and I want to pair it up with the pretty paper I've kept for so long;  I try not to cover the paper too much.  I was inspired by Magenta's DT member Ellie Knol's layout to keep the elements as transparent/monochronmatic as possible. 


Papers: Scrapbook paper: Magenta (Delicate Stripes Memor-194); Card Stock (Bazzill), vullumn
Stamp: Hero Arts (Playfull Lowercase LL764)
Others: sticker (Kelly Panacci), ribbons, white gel pen (Gelly Roll), butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), Tiny Tabs and Tags die (Tim Holtz)

Thanks for stopping.
