Twistback Thursday

Hello there! Happy Friday!
Spring break starts NOW! YAY!
I have been working on a layout pretty much all week, here and there, when I had time. It's not one of my favorite layouts, but the challenge was so fun, I just had to play along!
Here is the Twistback Thursday challenge I played along with at Sketch-N-Scrap:

#1. The BACK. We have dragged out a sketch from the past. This particular one is from Sept. 1, 2013:

#2. The TWIST! You can only use WHITE CARDSTOCK/PAPER/TAGS. That's right folks, you need to create your own designs here. Make your decorative papers, embellishments, title, sentiments, using inks, paints, stamping, sprays, pens etc. Now no cheating!
I loved the sketch and yes, I was up for a challenge and this was challenge for me!
I used my Cameo and used 2 cut files from the Silhouette Store and cut them out on white cardstock. I used watercolors and Gelatos to color them. I then added lots of stitching.
I also cut the title on my Cameo:

The green is the negative part from the rectangle cut file:

Here are a few more close ups:

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
