Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 99

Hi there! How's your Memorial Day weekend going? My husband and I are actually moving into a new apartment this weekend so we're going to be busy, busy, busy. It will probably go on until next weekend because we can't get off work during the weekdays. So before I pack up my craft supplies I have a few cards for some DT spots that I have to make. You might not see me in some of my other DT challenge spots next week though...

I did have enough time to make a card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 99. I believe this is Lynn's last sketch for the month. And it's a great sketch! So let's have some fun shall we? Here's the sketch...

I was hoping to get my new Waltzingmouse stamps in the mail, but they haven't arrived yet. So I'm still the meantime, I used some older sets, they're still goodies though! Here's what I came up with...

The sketch was absolutely perfect for layering!!! So I layered away! :) I used the biggest image in Very Vintage Labels No. 18. I stamped it, die cut it and embossed the edges. Then  I layered on a doily, a circle punched from some My Mind's Eye patterned paper. And on top, I stamped and hand cut this beautiful image from Cameo To Go.

I made the flower using flower dies from Papertrey Ink. I layered canvas and patterned papers to make it fuller. I used the leaf images from Roses In Bloom, to make the leaves for my paper flower. I stamped them, colored them and hand cut them. Then I crumpled them to add a little texture.

I also stamped and cut these cute banners from Bitty Banners and adhered them over my crocheted lace. I stamped my sentiment from Fancy Phrases on a die cut banner and adhered it under the cameo.

That's all I have for you today. It's going to be a little quiet here next week. But there's going to be a stamp release for one of my DT spots next I'll still be in the loop. I hope you enjoy your long weekend. Thanks for stopping by today. Please join us over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! I'll see you there! :)
