Happy - Scrap Affairs sketch challenge

There is an awesome sketch by Kim Watson in the October issue of Scrap Affairs.  When I made the background for my "Pause Relax and Breathe" layout I really enjoyed it so much so I decided to make another background for this challenge...and use the last scraps of the Celebr8 Sea Treasurers collection.  Here is what I came up with.

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Celebr8 (Sea Treasures); Cardstock: American Craft: Chipboard: Celebr8; Fabric circles: Celebr8; Brads: My Mins Eye; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye; Die cuts: My Minds Eye; Stickers: Autentique; Twine: Coats; Inks: Tim Holtz distress inks (Scattered staw, crushed olive, tumbled glass, salty ocean, faded jeans, bluepring sketch); Stencil: The Crafters Workshop (Sea Bubbles); Other mediums: Versamark. Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders (Reindeer Moss Green, Midnight Teal); Border punch: Martha Stewart.

Some close ups:
 I adore these inks together.  

 I heat embossed the chipboard title.  The fabric circles are just layered over each other with some bling on the top.

 The sea horse with the foiled silver polka dots were the perfect accent.

 The brads, enamel dots and die cuts all have silver accents.

 Sea themed stickers and die cuts from various brands all go together perfectly.

I heat embossed the flourish chipboard as well.
