July/August Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone, and welcome to another Sketch Challenge.  This month we have something a little different, and I hope you find it interesting and inspiring.  If it takes you a little outside your comfort zones, just go with it!  Good luck, and we are all looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
July / August Layout Sketch

And here is our first sample from the Creative Team.
Beautiful Boy by Heather Bensley (CT)
The first of our sketch layouts is from Heather, who has used masking, Glimmer Mist and sewing to pick up the main elements of the sketch. 
The different coloured threads sewn to make the trees is very effective, and looks great.  The leaves have been created from a daisy punch, then the petals cut off to make the leaves.  A great way to get a few extra miles out of those punches! And what about those birds?..... I just love them - perfect for a baby boys layout.
Here you can see the masking using the Glimmer Mist, and the delicate effect of a small section of border punched edging.

July / August Card Sketch
I will have some card samples to share with you shortly.  What will you do?

You will have until Pumpkin Time on August 14th to complete your sketches.
