April C'est Magnifique sketch challenge

Hi everyone !

I hope you had a great Easter week end ! Mine was filled with chocolates and family, like most of us I think...
Time to get back to scrapbooking and play with the new sketch from C'est Magnifique Kits :

I'm still working on my Istanbul album from last year's trip, so I choose a picture of my daughters in the garden of the Dolmabache palace. The colors were vibrant, so I had to use a colorful background, here a K&Company paper :

We do have a lot of layers here. First white modeling paste over a damask stencil by Prima Marketing
Second, gold microbeads with gel medium. Third, glimmer mists (Tattered leather and olive vine) and white ink spray, 

Plus some stamps around the edges (Prima Marketing) and distress inks (Ranger). Then different teared papers with a die cut (Spellbinders). 

Then flowers (Prima Marketing) and leaves (I Am Roses). And the finishing touch, the pearl flourishes (Prima Marketing). I re-colored the small roses from the flourishes with a gold marker (American Crafts).

And this layout will not be completely mine if I hadn't fussy cut something, so I fussy cut the title "Beautimus" from an acrylic stamp (Prima Marketing).

I am in love with the result, I hope you like it too !
See you soon...
