Arty Girlz - 3D & My NSBD layout

With it having just been Bank Holiday & several of my colleagues have left, I have been very busy at work. I completely forgot to check the challenges. Although having said that I need a break from them all. I am in scrapping mode & as Im quite unhappy at work I can only create sporadically. Cards are just not working for me, layouts evolve over days.
However I did quite well & managed this card for Arty Girlz, 3D theme. The BG chipboard flower is covered in paper, the edges sanded & inked with my gold Krylon pen. Papers are Papermania, Simply elegant.
This is a page layout I created for National Scrapbooking Day. It is based on one of the cybercrop classes I had no time to complete. I have given up trying to get a better photo of this. The greens are far more zingy, none of the gems cam be seen in the corner rub on at the top of my photo & half the title is obscured.
It reads, Ready for my close up! The class was Up Close & Personal. The journalling isn't very clear either, it says although this is quite an old photo of me now it remains my absolute favourite. The lady got my make up just right & I look so natural. And I can't believe I missed off my lime green ric rac!!!!

Papers are Sublime, Kaisercraft. Title stickers from Range. The acetate flowers are hand made.
