My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge - MFTWSC160 - Adventure

Greetings friends!!  I hope you're staying warm wherever you are!  It's FRIGID here in the Northeast so it's affording me a bit more time indoors with my babies which gives me a little bit of an opportunity to get to my crafty desk and create with the weekly My Favorite Things weekly sketch challenges!  Here is this week's sketch:
I've made mine into a 5x5 creation.  And for today's photo purposes it is displayed on a white card base.  It is, however, intended for the cover of a paper bag mini-album that I am working on for a friend for her birthday.  
I used a melange of papers that I've had in my stash for AGES.  I used a theme of teals, blues, oranges and ivory as my color scheme.  The album is a winter theme so I kept *mostly* to the cool side of the color wheel.  As I said, this creation is 5x5 and I've used the Reel Life stamp and Die-namics together to embellish my album cover.  I stamped my sentiment onto the Fishtail Flag Stax and Layers Die-namics.  If you don't own these you MUST!  I reach for them almost every time I create.  They are totally indispensable to your crafty stash.
I used my very favorite MFT flower die - Royal Rose Die-namic here in the center of the main flower.  I love the ruffly edge it has!!  I then used two Rolled Mum Die-namics placed together for added volume behind the royal rose.  I had some fun resin flowers and a felt sticker that went really well with my grouping so I added everything with hot glue to ensure that it stays in place. 
As a last sprinkle of fun I added a few scattered sequins.  
I hope you find time in your wintery day to join the talented crew over at MFT for some sketchy fun!!

Crafty Hugs!
