CPS Sketch Challenge

This is my first time trying the CPS sketch challenge, but since I'm expanding my horizons, why not (hopefuly I can meet the expectactations ... when I've lurked out there I've seen some a-maze-ing cards!)

So here is this week's sketch:
I thought buckles & brads would make a nice detail for those side layers so I busted out my Hodge Podge Hardware ... dusted off the layers that have accumulated since the last time I used it (I'm a bit of a hoarder :o) and here's what I came up with

I used the Baroque background stamp on the chocolate layer, and Turning a New Leaf on the focal layer.  I recently saw the green & chocolate color combo and loved it so decided to try it out. The button is a raspberry fizz vintage button and the half pearl is from SU's Pretties kit

Thanks for stopping by!
