Once upon a sketch with ribbons

I'm a little behind this month with challenges because I'm in the middle of buying a house.
So much organising and running hither and thither.
I discovered Once upon a sketch again after a hiatus.
Here's the link
and this month's sketch.

I started by using the floral Dear Lizzy Wonderful Wrapping from Polka dot party range.
I lightly misted through a chicken wire mask , as per the sketch.

Next I matted on Pebbles Loveseat which is a pale pink.
This dictated the theme of pale pink and blues.

Digging into this month's Counterfeit kit, I was inspired to use ribbon, knots plus making a rosette from a piece of already gathered ribbon. I wound it around to form a circle radiating out.(It is baby pink,not white as the scanner shows)

Next I added the 2 resin birds and some Heidi Swapp bow stickers.
Other smaller embellishments were added, including the felt hearts under the photo and the cupid top left cut from Kaisercraft paper.
My journaling was done on a tag which was then covered with a transparency that says Hello.
My title is also Heidi Swapp and a soft green to contrast.

I've added extra wording there too saying....mother and daughter, so much alike...ALWAYS.
(My daughter will contest that statement, but I see so many similarities).
