Thanks to You!!

This week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge "bamboozled" me a little. Love the sketch... it has a "dangly" element which I have never dealt with before but, the right side needed some kind of border. Now, I know this is pretty straightforword but, I have to admit, I have never done a border (edge of card kind of border)using a punch or die or whatever. Amazing... considering all the gorgeous cards I see like this and I certainly have border options, haha!! And, the dangly was new too. Anywho... took me a bit of fidgeting and finally I came up with this.


Used a couple SU border punches, some Memory Box paper, and pearls/felt flowers and white organza ribbon for the dangly. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Fancy Phrases and the flags are WMS Bitty Banners. LOVE both of these sets. You can find them here. WMS just had a release too with some new and fabulous sets!!

And here's the sketch...



















I know, I'm like a broken record but, whoohoo tomorrow is Friday!! Work has been pretty hectic lately so Friday is definitely TGIF for me these days!!

If you stop by, leave a comment, love to hear from you!!
