Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 69

This is my second post for the day...make sure to check out  my The Craft's Meow October Card Sketch Challenge post. Scroll down please.

One more week and I'll see my mom and family again! I'm so excited! Don't worry though, I've made most of my DT cards ahead of time and hopefully won't be missing a beat even though I'm half way across the world. I'll also update my blog with my travels along the way. :)

Today's my birthday! It's also my husband's birthday! :) Yes, we share the same birthday. Too bad we won't get to spend it with my family. But seeing them again is well worth it. 
I'm off for the rest of the day to have some fun with my hubby. We're not doing anything too special though, we're saving it for our vacation next week. I'll make sure to have pictures up to show you! :)

Speaking of DT cards, it's time for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 69. Before I became a Mischief Maker, I used to join the WM Sketch Challenge a lot. They had wonderful sketches and sometimes very TRICKY ones too. It hasn't changed at all. This week, we have one tricky, TRICKY sketch challenge for everyone. You'll see what I mean...

Didn't I say it was tricky? As you all know, I'm not very good with 3D projects...I'm leaving that up to the very capable hands of my fellow Mischief Makers. But I do have a card for everyone this week. It's kind of a "cheat"! 

I didn't have any stamps with a hat on it, so I stamped a witch with a HAT on. :) She from the Halloween Party Stamp Set. Are you liking my "cheat" card so far? I kept the colors pretty simple, a bit of change from the orange, and purple don't you think? I used Very Vintage Labels No. 18 to add my sentiment to. I thought this stamp has beautiful details on it and looked really perfect for a Halloween card. I also added some Victorian Frippery to add a little more detail to the bottom of the card. 

Make sure to check out the other Mischief Makers. The variety of projects will amaze you! See you at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Come and play! :)


  1. I really like your take on the sketch. I'm not great with 3D projects either. I do like the soft neutral and very pretty look to your card!

    Birthday greetings to you and your husband - and have a super holiday!

  2. I think you did a great job with a nearly impossible sketch. I love the pretty vintage label and feminine feel. :)

  3. A very happy birthday to you! I hope you and your husband have a wonderful day celebrating together.

    Your card is so lovely--the combo of kraft, black, and cream is gorgeous!

  4. Love all the layers and textures on this Jean - the twine looks sort of like a spider web! Happy B'day to you and DH - how funny you share the same b'day! Hope you had a fun day!
