C'est Magnifique March Sketch~!

Hi everyone!  It's time for us to post the sketch we will be using for our March challenge at C'est Magnifique. Thanks once again to Michele Singh for creating this beautiful sketch for us.  She's awesome!

Here is the sketch we will be using in March, and also a look at how I used the sketch, along with our March Kit, which has already sold out.


This past summer my oldest, along with a friend and his cousin, spent much of the afternoon out in the woods searching for mushrooms. Boy, did they get dirty- but they had a blast doing it and so it was worth it :).

When working with these kits, I always like to try and find a different way of using things. On this particular project, I took apart the Snowbell flower from Manor House Creations, and used the stamen to accent my Maya Road flower and I also used some of the petals underneath it. Just one way to change up the look of something!
 The gorgeous "Fancy Bird Cage" is from Blue Fern Studios :)

From the Flower Add-On:
Prima: Cabaletta: B
Maya Road: Vintage Edge Mum: Antique Mocha
Maya Road: Vintage Lace Daisies: Milk

From the Embellishment Add-On:
Basic Grey: Serenade: Stickers
Basic Grey: Serenade: Designer Chipboard Stickers
Prima: Fabric Butterfly Embellishments: Vintage
Maya Road: White Polka Dot Kraft Note Envelopes
Now it's your turn to give it a try.  The sketch challenge is open to everyone - you don't have to be a member of our kit club.  You can interpret the sketch any way you want, but we do want to look at your layout and be able to tell you used the sketch.  But feel free to flip it on its side, or turn it upside down if that's what works best for you.
We will be offering two prizes, awarded randomly to participants in our Sketch Challenge.  The first prize is this beautiful assortment of paper, embellishments, and chipboard!  The winner of this prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping charges!
Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store,  will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 
We will also chose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
And you have the entire month of March to submit your layout.
What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1.  You must be a follower of our blog.  It's easy to become follower -see the left sidebar.

2.  Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post.  Please link to the blog post where you have uploaded your layout  (not your general blog address). If you do not have a blog, you may link to an online gallery.

 Deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, March 31 (US time).
We look forward to seeing your layouts!
See you VERY SOON with the WINNERS of my February Giveaway~!!
