Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 108

Hi there! It's another weekend and I have a few more cards to make. Today's card is for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 108. I went through the submissions yesterday and found one gorgeous card after another. I'm really tired from work so I'll keep this short.

Today's sketch is inspired by our Design Team member, Belinda. 

The first thing I worked on when I saw this sketch was the tag. I die cut it and decided I wanted to use one of my new stamps. This one is from Heroines: Fairy Princess.

I stamped the fairy image directly on the stamp and then again on some patterned paper and cut out her dress. I stamped it once more to get a different colored ribbon. I adhered it over the image and colored in the rest of the image using my Distress Markers. I also added a tiny strip of patterned paper for my sentiment.

When I was done with my tag, I started working on my card base. I wanted it to be dainty just like the little fairy. I cut out a strip of pink patterned paper and ran it through my Martha Stewart punch. I added lace and a strip of ribbon to it as well. I used it as a skirt for my background panel. 

For my background panel I stamped these cute star images from Midnight Feast. It looked like it was missing something, so I added a little texture in the form of dry embossing. I ran my card through my Cuttlebug using my Chevron Impression Plate.

Okay. My eye lids are not cooperating with me anymore. So I'm going to sign off for tonight. I hope you join us over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. You have a chance of winning a free WMS stamp set! So come on over and have a little fun as well! :) Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to see you there!
