Another sketch layout

I loved the sketch challenge at C'est Magnifique this month and wanted to create something with it.  This is my layout:

I did some stencilling in the background - I like the effect but I think I need a bit more practice to achieve some cleaner lines:

I think a bit of online searching is in order to find some tutorials to help me out!  Despite my blurry results, I'm entering this into the stencilling challenge at Scrap it Girl this month.

I'm also submitting at Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Challenge #34/2014 - create a layout using flowers you made yourself.   I made the roses (rolled spiral technique), and the daisies (with a punch and pearls for the centres).
