Imaginisce June Challenge

When I saw the sketch and the challenge over at Imaginisce this month, I knew I wanted to participate.  There was a gorgeous sketch by Diana Fisher, and some interesting rules...

I had a picture of my husband and daughters that I wanted to use.
Here is my take on the challenge:
Of course, all the paper I used is from Imaginisce, but I wanted to use my itop which I have loved forever.  I made a brad, below, with two layers of fabric.  And I stitched a little vellum pocket to hold my journaling.

I made sure to use lots of brown, since that was in the rules!  I included this little bow that I stitched up one night (I am a huge TV junkie, but I don't like to watch TV without doing something!).
You can also just catch a glimpse of the white behind the photo. It is my recycled piece---a piece of packaging that I embossed with hexagons. 

I also used some mist and lightly colored in a few of the herringbones on the paper.

SO, there you have it!  Here are the rules of the challenge: 

1.  Use the sketch as inspiration for your project (i.e. card, layout, mini book cover, etc)
2.  THEME: Father
3.  Use the color BROWN
4.  Use some kind of recycled product on your project.

Here is Diana's sketch:
