A FIRST CLASS MURDER MYSTERY

Hi everyone, here is another layout I have just done, using a sketch from Sketchabilites No 84 for my inspiration. If you didnt know - I love sketches and challenges. If you want to give it a go just click on the link below.
So, for this one I chose to change some of my photos into sepia as this party was placed in the 1920s.
As it was our party I  decided to keep our picture in colour!!
Anyway, I then chose my papers and cardstock and double matted my photos.
I made a huge tag as per the sketch, using some Prima packaging and black cardstock.
I then matted my sepia colour cardstock ( I distressed the edges on this) onto black cardstock and glued this down.
I attached the large tag then added my matted photos.
Next I made the smaller tags using some Prima paper and black cardstock.
I then started to decorate.
I chose assorted flowers in neutral colours, I punched out some small branches, I made two large butterflies and added beaded bodies, I added some small pearl heart shaped buttons and a small wooden tag.
The journaling tag describes the characters and who dunnit!
Hope you like it and give it a go, the sketch or the party!! It was great fun by the way!
