Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 90

Hi bloggers! Yay! It's finally the weekend. I made this post ahead of time because me and my husband are off to Washington DC to see the Cherry Blossom Festival. I'm excited to see it. I never have before. It's also a nice little break from work.  I'll have pictures posted when I get back. :)

Let's get going with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 90. We have a lovely sketch by Renee Lynch. I try to stay within the scope of the sketch as much as I can. But once in a while I like to play around with it. I'll show you what I mean. But first, here's Renee's sketch for this week's challenge.

So here's what I did with the sketch. I used an image from Florentine Frippery to flank my tag. I stamped it and heat embossed it so that it would stand out. Then I used a die from PTI to cut out the little blue panels and sewed them onto the patterned paper panel. 

I added some crocheted lace and seam binding ribbon to make it a little bit more "frilly". :)  I also added a key from Michael's to the knot. The floral ticket, I can't remember where I got it from exactly. I just know that I found it over at Pinterest. It was a free printable. I cut that out and adhered it on a tag. It's not too visible, but I actually stamped some of the flourish images from Paris Nouveau on the edges of the tag.

I also added this die cut from Ironworks Motifs by Spellbinders. Then I adhered the Webster's Pages silhouette/cameo over it. 

 I couldn't find links for the leaves. But they're from Recollections and they're distributed by Michael's. Then I attached the flowers over a portion of the leaves. They're from I am Roses

I hope you liked my card for today. I thoroughly enjoy looking through submissions over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I might not be able to comment on everything, but I try to as much as I can. So I hope I'll see your work over there! 

Thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back in a few days! Enjoy your weekend!
