C'est Magnifique November Sketch Challenge

This is the wonderful sketch for November and above is my interpretation, it's of my mother when she was in her early twenties (well I think it is, I must check with my auntie).  I found a mini album full of photos that she had taken in a photographic studio and I can't wait to use a couple more in the future.

 And now for a few close ups.
 The products I used were:
Graphic 45 – A Ladies Diary, 
Spellbinders Butterfly Die, Making Memories Alpha, 
Prima Flowers and Zip Fastener, Decorative Scissors, 
Kaisercraft Rhinestones and Flourish, Tim Holtz Distress Stamp Pad,
Stampin Up! Butterfly die, Tattered Angels Glimmermist, 
Fiskars Border Punch, Quic Kutz Lace Doily Dies, 
Lace and Doily from Stash.
