Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 45

Good morning bloggies! I'm back this morning for two posts: Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 45 and The Craft's Meow May Release - Day 3. So make sure you check out BOTH posts ok! ;)

Let's get on with it shall we? Claire has a completely different sketch for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 45. I don't know if I've ever seen a sketch like this in any of the challenges I have ever joined. And that's exactly what I love about WMSC. Here, let me show you...

The wonderful thing about it is that it's totally open for your interpretation! Don't you just love it?! I must say though, I mulled over it for quite a while. I actually made two cards for this one. After I had made the first one I wasn't too happy with it. So as I always do, I stepped away. After two days, an idea came to mind...and here it is!

I actually saw this pinwheel tutorial on one of the blogs that I follow. I'm so sorry to say that I can't remember which blog it was. I look at soooo many of them everyday. I find that when I'm stumped, it's always a good idea to look around what other people have up their sleeves. lol. Well, after I saw the pinwheel tutorial, I came up with this! :) The sentiment is from Frame It, and the flowers are from Roses in Bloom. I made the tassel from ribbon, pearls and a charm. What do you think? :) I can't wait to see what you'll do with this sketch. See you there! :)

The other wonderfully, talented Mischief Makers have more inspiration for you, so don't forget to head on over to check out their blogs!
