Flying Unicorn Mojo Monday - Oct 28th with FabScraps

Mojo Monday at the Flying Unicorns
Every Monday. the Flying Unicorns presents mojo Monday.  A weekly sketch challenge meant to jump start your mojo and inspire your creativity.  The designs are just dreamy - sketched by either Alda Stevens or Tammy Henderson.  This week. Alda has given it a whirl - and what a whirl it is!
The rules are rather simple - create and post onto the Mojo Monday thread for the corresponding week.  You can use your own supplies and whatever paper you want.  There are no requirements.  Easy!

This is my interpretation of the lovely sketch. I used FabScraps Shabbylicious collection and PrimaMarketing flowers to help me.

Here is the sketch you will use for the week of Oct 28- Nov 2nd.  So elegant and delicate. I continued with that overall feel.

I decided to use the FabScraps Shabbylicious collection for this for a simple reason.  The sketch feels very shabby chic to me and there is no better collection for shabby chic style than FabScraps Shabbylicious.

I used a FabScraps chipboard window and covered it with a FabScraps diecut made especially for this chipboard piece - very unique and clever set matching the chipboards to diecuts.

The word art chipboard piece from FabScraps has been covered in Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel.

The little metal charms are from Flying Unicorns Metal Adornments collections.

Thanks Alda - and thanks to you for coming here and looking.
I value your time.
