Hello bloggies! Sorry the blog hasn't been busy lately. We have relatives staying over for a month and so we've been a little busy. I haven't even joined some of my favorite challenges in quite a while. Sometimes I'm saddened by it...but what can you do? I just hope for a little craft time every day. 

I'm back this Saturday for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 53. This week's sketch is by the talented Ms. Belinda Chang Langner. To which, I must admit, to having a bit of a hard time. Hee! :) Here's the sketch for WMSC53.

Here's my take on this sketch challenge. I was at a baby shower a few weeks ago and the color theme was pink. orange and yellow. I must admit, the colors just stuck to me. I usually prefer neutral and pastel colors...but these were just yummy together! :) 

For the background, I used my Dainty Doilies - Large Set from WMS. I just love this set. I know I'm not making as much as I can with it. But I'm trying. :) The sentiment is from Join Us, also from WMS. I stamped them on these banners that I die cut. Then I adhered them onto this doily that I also die cut. The dies are from PTI. 

Did you notice something with my card this week? There's no lace or ribbon or flower on it!!!! Ahhhhh!!!! Hahaha! lol! :) I hope you like it though! I'll see you over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog ok?! :) Enjoy your weekend!

As always, don't forget to browse through the cards of the other Mischief Makers as well as Waltzingmouse Stamp Design Team sites.
