Happiness - You Are My Bucket List - New Layout

Howdy scrappy friends! I finished a layout last night of DD at 2 months in her adorable little bunny ears hat.  



I played along with CSI - case file #81. Here is how I solved this case:  I used all 5 colors in the scheme. The pale chartreuse color was used in the two little stickers "oh look" and the pointer on the large photo on the left. The evidence used was a fleur-de-lys chipboard on the bucket list title upper right corner, there is a bird on the background paper near the same bucket list title in the upper right, I used glossy accents (the 3D chipboard stickers round scallop flowers on the left page), and even the textured paper for the base card stock on the right.  For the testimony I used the 6-word memoir: "Happiness - You are my Bucket List". 

For the left side of my layout I used the sketch and challenge #3 from Scrap Around the World. Here is the left side:

This challenge is to use the following sketch and mood board. For example: on this board you may be inspired by the colours (either all of them or just one, two or more) but you do not have to use any colours on the board if you don't want to. Other aspects of the mood board that could inspire you are, for example, the pleating/draping of the curtains, the soft organza type fabric, the chandelier, flower clusters, wood (from the table) the green from the grass, the misty background in the first image that could prompt the use of vellum or baking paper, hearts, ribbon, rafia, wreath elements, keys, clear elements, 'door-knob' type embellishments, corsets, dress-forms, floral vines, moulded resin embellishments and frames.



First, I rotated the sketch. I was inspired by the natural colors, floral groupings, keys in the chipboard stickers, and washi tape to replicate the glass/clear/vellum appearance.  

For the right hand side of my layout I used the sketch from the July Sketches with A Twist.  The twist was to use only cardstock as your base.  Here is the right side and the sketch:


I used stickers in lieu of the tags and lots of washi tape. My background is a solid grey/brown cardstock.

Here are a couple of closeup pictures:
