So this is the sketch.
And this is my entry :)
So originally, I had this without the buttons and twine and it just seemed to be missing something. After some very helpful suggestions, I decided to add a brown packing paper, crinkly flower in the lower right hand area. But after making one and trying it on, I just didn't like it. I like the flower, it just seemed too shabby on an otherwise 'clean' page. I was looking at the original sketch and the DT pages for some inspiration and decided to add the twine that was in the original sketch. Then I pulled out some buttons. I am really happy with how it looks now.
What do you think? Did I make the right choice?
Oops I forgot to add my supplies!
