Once Upon a Sketch challenge

I managed to stretch the sketch at Once Upon a Sketch into a two pager to accommodate these pictures of my MILs garden.  The background started off as a blank slate. Two pieces of white cardstock.  I spritzed with purple mist and then a little red and then splashed some green ink across the layout.  The edges are rubbed with blue and purple ink and stamped with a Kaiser texture stamp.
 
 

Once I was happy with my background I layered scraps of patterned paper and lace using the sketch. 

Loved this sketch! And loved checking out the Once Upon a Sketch blog to see what everyone else is doing with it.
