Sisters And Besties

I was really excited to be invited to be part of The Paper Teapot design team, and this is my first official project as part of the team :) All the papers and the wooden veneers are part of The Archivist collection from Prima (available here) and the stencil is from Prima also (here).
My mother and her sister Mollie became more and more inseparable after Dad and Uncle Bert died. Although they always looked alike, and sounded somewhat alike, they even began to take on each others mannerisms. The photo on this page was taken in Invercargill at my brother's, while they were down there for Uncle Tom's funeral.

I used a really cool sketch from Scrapping Our Stash Challenge for March, this is it...
plus part of the challenge is also to use gold, which I did by brushing gold wax over the stencilled pattern, and wrapping gold thread around some embellies.
I hope you like it!
