WMSC 106

Hello! It's finally the weekend! I have a lot of DT assignments to make for this month and the coming month. So I'll try to make most of them this weekend. Hopefully I'll be very productive. :) 

It's time for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 106. We have a beautiful sketch from Sandie this week. Here it is. Let's see what you make of it. :)

I wanted to make a sweet/romantic card for this sketch and pulled out Paris Nouveau and Nordic Spring. I heat embossed the big label from Paris Nouveau in baby pink onto kraft cardstock. I unfortunately don't have the Spellbinders die that coordinates with it so I just hand cut mine. I adhered it over a lace stamp from Hero Arts. 

I dry embossed my vintage cream background with a chicken wire impression plate. I really wish I had the chicken wire stamp set. I hope to remedy that soon enough. I have such a long wish list that it's hard to get everything I want at the same time. I'm pretty sure you all know what I'm talking about. :) 

I also adhered a strip of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and a strip of lace trim over my background panel. Instead of a button on the right hand side of the label, I tied a ribbon  and added a flower.

The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases. I also have Compact Sentiments 1 & 2 on my list. Ughhh I just WISH I could get them all at the same time. Anyway, something was missing on the bottom part of my card. So I stamped this beautiful butterfly from Nordic Spring and hand cut it. I added some pearls in the middle for a little bling. 

Okay, that's it for me today! I'm off to make my DT assignments. I am going to have so much fun. :) I hope to see your work over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Thanks for stopping by today! See you again soon. :)
