Best Wishes

Good morning! Happy weekend!

I'm here today to bring you this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. One last fabulous sketch from Kelly Schirmer.

I have been invited to a bridal shower this weekend, so I wanted to create a card for the bride. I used You're Lovely and some other sets to create a collage-y sort of card. I envy those of you who can pull this style off! It never quite turns out like I see it in my head... :)

I combined PTI's Fine Linen cardstock with SU!'s Wisteria Wonder, one of the new In Colors. I'm a sucker for new colors, and I really like this dusty purple color.

I cut my fancy topper with a Labels 14 Nestability. This piece is actually connected to the base of the card - I trimmed the rest off and adhered it right to the front. I customized my ribbon by coloring it with a Copic marker.

Thanks for stopping by today - we hope you'll play along with us this week - head to the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog to link up your creation. In addition to the Top Mice awards, a free stamp set is awarded each week to a random player!

Enjoy your Saturday!
