Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 74

Hi bloggies! Whew! Where did the days go?! It's almost Thanksgiving! It's my last week here, I'm headed home Wednesday, and I'll be back on Thanksgiving Day. I hope I'm fine after the long plane ride enough to enjoy Thanksgiving lunch. 

I'm missing my little craft space, my stamps, papers and inks. I'm guessing I'll be spending a lot of time there when I get back. Well, speaking of stamps, papers and's time to get inky once more! It's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 74. And oh my goodness, let me just say, last week's submissions were just breathtaking! I can't wait to see what you make of this one!

I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet...but I'm already making Christmas cards! I can't help it! They're one of my favorite cards to make and not to mention my favorite holiday. Besides, this sketch was just screaming Christmas at me! lol! :)

I made this card before I left for vacation so I didn't have any of the new Waltzingmouse stamp sets yet. They're actually waiting for at home and I can't wait to get a crack at them!  So instead, I'm going to share with you a card made with images from one of the previous Christmas Waltzingmouse stamp sets...Seasons of Love.

This set is absolutely beautiful, the intricate details on the images are just brilliant. And the sentiments and font just...WOW! For my card, I made a background pattern using the snowflake image from this set. Then I layered on a piece of patterned paper, and then a die cut. I was trying to go for a more "snowflake" kind of feel for the die cut, but then this seemed to fit perfectly. Then I stamped and cut the heart image and layered it over the die cut. 

I stamped the sentiment on the space provided on the heart instead of following the sketch. Then I tied this beautiful ribbon above it to soften things up. I hope you've enjoyed my card and I'll see you over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I know the blog's been quiet, so I promise I'll make it up to all of you when I get back! Come and play! :)
