My Great Grandparents ~ Stuck On U Sketches Challenge

Hello everyone!!  Happy Friday!!  That means we have another sketch reveal over at Stuck On U Sketches, and it's a beautiful sketch by our very own Nanne!!
Let me tell you, we have got some talented ladies on this team!!!  Beautiful job, Nanne!! 
Okay, now about my creation!!  I decided to go through some of my Grandmother's old photos and came across this photo of her mother and dad, my Great Grandparents..  Not for sure when it was taken, or how old they were...  counting on some of my fb cousins and second cousins to answer that for me...  That's the great thing about fb...  I'm finding a lot of my family out there, some I've never met and the cool thing about it is they are just a click away!!....  So for now, let's just say the photo is "old"!  lol
Here are a few close-ups....

Here is an old Prima flower I've had in my stash for a very long time and I've sprayed it with glimmer mist, I think, did that awhile back, too..  You can also see a BoBunny Trinket (Cameo), some Prima Say It In Pearls and a KaiserCraft Wood Flourish that I painted with my Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Peeled Paint..

Here you can see some distressing around the edges, 2 different kinds of  Lace, MS punched edge, and some more Prima Say It In Pearls

This layout also qualifies for a few other challenges out there...
