Just Chillin-Stuck on U sketches challenge

Here's a layout I made of my dd for the sketch challenge on Stuck on U sketches..  I had a lot of fun with this one..  I love the Bittersweet paper collection by Basic Gray and I knew I wanted to use it on something special..  I also used SCAL for the title and the tag that the title is on.. I could not decided which font to use, too many options..LOL  :O)

A close up of the tag that I journaled on .. 

And the title.. I cut the font with SCAL and the fonts are Blueberry and Brockscript (bold).  The base is a shape that came with SCAL.

The flower that I made, which you can find the tutorial on our challenge blog (Stuck on U sketches).
inked the edges a little bit with Tim Holtz Distress Ink; Worn lipstick.  and then finally added a big white brad.

then the two little flowers.. I did these the same way, except added a white prima flower onto the base so is stuck out a little more.. I also added a little mini button brad to the centers..

Cricut cart: Graphically Speaking (flowers)
Cricut cart: Home Accent (flourish)
