Once upon a sketch

This was the sketch over at Once upon a sketch
I really liked it so decided to play along this time.
There is also journalling criteria that goes along with the sketches over at OUAK and this time it was this
Journalling Criteria: Who is in the photo? Name the person in the photo and at least 1 fact about them. This can be personality, character, talent , achievement etc. but it must be at least 2 sentences long.

Used Fancy Pants Lilac house range and I must say I don't usually like papers like these but I am in love with this range, some petaloo flowers that I inked the edges of and added some Deco Ice glass glitter. I added some more paper fowers and a strip of adhesive lace across the center. The fancy cut flowers are from The girls paperie  - Jubilee. for the background I used a crafters workshp heart template which I used to both ink and stitch a border. You cant see it from the photo but I also used a versamark and a white inkpad to stamp some swirls in the hearts white space,  of course the obligatory butterflies with some pearls for the finishing touches.
