WMSC 32

Happy Saturday everyone! I was a bit busy making cards for my other DT assignments and so I only had the time to post this now. As it is a wonderful Saturday, it's also time for Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge. Sometimes, WM sketches really make you go out of your comfort zone and try to come up with something wonderful. Here's their sketch for WMSC 32. Let's see what I made with it! :)



While I was trying to think of what to do with this sketch, I remembered my very talented friend Aimes who loves to go rogue on some of her card challenges. With a little smile on my face, I decided to do the same on this one! Haha! I followed most of the sketch...but not to the tee. This is what I came up with. I was inspired by the last winning card to make my own flower for this challenge. I used McGill's flower punches to make this paper flower. Seriously, I have no idea what flower it could possibly be...it's a Jean flower hahaha! I thought it turned out well though. I also haven't used my Quickutz Monarch butterfly die in a while and it was PERFECT for this card. 


And since this is a Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge, I opted to use WMS stamps. I used Vintage Label 10 for that gorgeous pink frame. And Fancy Phrases for the sentiment as well as the beautiful label it's on. I hope you like this one. I think this might be my favorite card yet! :) Thanks for stopping by, I'll see you again later!

  2. ACK, Jean this is amazing! That flower is so gorgeous! Was it a single McGill punch, or different sizes...inquiring stampers (aka ME!) want to know :)!

  3. I'm sorry I didn't post it clearly. The McGill punches I used to make the flower are the Medium Geranium Leaf and Small Geranium Leaf. For the leaf, I used the Birch Leaf punch. :) Enjoy making your flowers!!!

  8. I think this is my favorite as well. Love the soft colors and pretty papers. It is nice to add your own touch to a sketch. They are open interpretaion. IT would be boring if they all looked like cut outs. :)
    Hugs~

  14. Hi Andrea! I used glass beads for the middle of the flower. You can use any blingy bead. I think I got them at JoAnn's.
