a special tea for the bride to be

It's been a little while since I've created for the HBS monthly challenges - but I had the perfect photo for this beautiful sketch, so it was calling me to play along.
 This is a picture of my youngest sister who is getting married very soon!!  We are so excited and cannot wait for this special day.  We had the Kitchen Tea on the weekend and I took some pictures.
All the papers are from Basic Grey - Kissing Booth collection - I've also used some of the paper and canvas embellishments from the same collection!
Here are some close-up's:
 ... I ♥ clusters of embellishments, especially flowers - here are some assorted ones from my stash, layered with chiffon ...
 ... a bit of gesso and ink in the background, some of the canvas and paper tags/embellishments and AC Thickers and Kasiercraft little letters ...
 ... some more of the letters and the journalling ...

And here is the fabulous sketch - you can find lots of inspiration for this sketch in the gallery at HBS!

Thanks for coming to visit ☺
