Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 103

Hello! Happy Saturday! It's finally the weekend. This week has been sooo hot I'm so glad this weekend's forecast seems to be better. My nephew's coming to spend his summer vacation with us. I hope I'll still have enough time to myself for some card making.

It's Saturday, and we're up for another round of Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. We have another sketch from Edna. This one is for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 103.

I took a while before I figured out what I wanted to do with this sketch. I cheated a little bit on this one. Instead of following the sketch completely, I changed the bottom portion with die cut stars.

I also stamped this cute image from Half Pint Heroines, colored it in and hand cut it. This set is sooo cute. I'm really enjoying playing with it and Half Pint Heroes

After adding the die cut stars, I put some glitter on it, it's not that visible in the picture though. I also thought I would add some liquid pearls to it, but they flattened out right after I put them. So, I added some rhinestones instead.

I know the sketch is a little tricky, but I wanted to give you all a little idea on how to use it another way. So give it a try and join us over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! I would love to see all the other different takes on this sketch as well! Thanks for stopping by today. I'll see you all again soon! :)


  1. I really like your take on the sketch - the die cut stars are just fab. They give so much texture! Love the cute elephant too!
