Once Upon A Sketch June Challenge

Hello !

My eyes got caught by a element of the Once Upon A sketch June challenge : a gate ! And as I have the perfect Cricut cartridge for that, I went for this sketch :

Gate, flowers... don't need more to create ! So here is what I came with :

K&Company papers, Prima Marketing and I Am Roses flowers, laces from Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Costco, blue mat by Heidi Grace, stencil with chalk by Prima Marketing, purple pen by Faber-Castell, Sukare white gel pen, and Cricut Expression with Ornemental Iron (for the gate) and Flower Shoppe (the white leaves).

Another lovely layout for my Istanbul album. This picture of my dear friend was taken during lunch after visiting Agia Sophia.

Have a great day !
