Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 63

Welcome to the weekend everyone! My husband and I have been meaning to see Zarkana by Cirque du soleil. I received a coupon from Groupon just last week for a 40% discount for 8 tickets. I'm not familiar with Groupon, and am actually quite skeptical about it. Has anyone ever used it before? Is it real? Or is it just a scam? It would be great if it were real, then I could score cheaper tickets. Let me know ok? :)

Well then, onto our challenge shall we? Welcome to Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 63. Our sketch this week is from Anya. It's a wonderful, wonderful sketch. And you'll come to find that the Mischief Makers have used a number of variations for this sketch. I'm sure you'll enjoy this one! 

This sketch was begging for me to use Victorian Frippery. I saw this color combination from a magazine I was reading the other night and I wanted to try it out. I was a little afraid to use yellow and red on the same card. But I must admit, that adding the pink and vintage cream to the combination balanced things out. 

I've kept things simple, and just stamped out a label from Very Vintage Labels No. 10. I topped it off with this gorgeous sentiment from Say It Loud. I didn't go all out with my layering this time. I wanted to try to keep it simple. I can't get over how beautiful that border stamp from Victorian Frippery is. It's my absolute favorite border stamp, as you already know! :)

As always, don't forget to visit the other Mischief Makers and WMS Design Team for more inspiration. I'll see you over at the WMSC blog! Enjoy your weekend everyone! :)


  1. Just beautiful! I love the colours and pretty lace you've used. Fab!

  2. Hi Jean, I use Groupon quite often. Works great! Never had any issues. If you have questions before you try, you can pop me an email.

    I love your card this week! That Victorian Frippery is gorgeous. And in pink too! Even better!

  3. Just lovely, Jean! You've definitely given these colors a softer look with the addition of pink and cream, plus the pretty lace.

  4. I love this colour combo!! So serene and beautiful. I am so getting this Victoria Frippery set next order...I agree, that border is amazing :) Thanks so much for all your kind comments this week...and noticing my cards in CARDS :) There will even be MORE of me in January (wink,wink!) Hope your mom is still on the mend and your back is feeling better. Hugs :)

  5. I love this color combination. Red and Yellow with a bit of pink and cream. I love the stamped lace, adds such a delicate feel to your card. Great inspiration, guess I better get stamping on my sketch!
