Graphic 45 French Country Masculine layout

Today I have another layout for which the opposing page was created years ago.  Luckily, I still had a few of the Fleur de Lys stamped images in my stash.  Though they were not colored, it only took a few seconds to determine how I had colored them...nothing compares to the shimmer of Wink of Stella pens.  Of course, I had more of this wonderful Graphic 45 papers.  Many of the Graphic 45 papers I have were purchased in packs of 25 at Tuesday Morning. I have shared and I still have pounds and pounds of gorgeous papers.  I know poor me. I have a thing for Fleur de Lys so I had plenty of stamps and two different glitter washi tapes. 

Here is the sketch I used from Pinterest.  This is an oldie but goodie, sometimes I just can't find a current sketch that fits the bill for the pics.  I thought this would be striking with the Graphic 45 papers.  If you like sketches, you should check out my Pinterest page.  I have boards for 1-2 photo sketches3 photo sketches4+ photo sketches and 2 page sketches

Here is a close up of the Cricut cut mat and embellishment cluster.
