The Journey...

Is Its Own Reward. Waltzingmouse sketch-- WMSC81-- is fabulous again this week {love these things!!} There's still time to participate, you have until Friday at noon EST. You must use at least one WMS image on your card and use the sketch--- weekly random draw for a free WMS stamp set-- doesn't get any better than that!!

Started out with a totally different idea and then, I wanted to use these papers from Authentique "Journey". Pretty bright/bold colors. Decided that WMS Asian Garden Additions would work well {and, works with my New Years resolution to ink up stamps that have been sitting} and away I went. Die cut a labels 18 in early espresso and whisper white. Embossed the whisper white and cut out to layer. Added an image from WMS Vintage Labels 18 {ADORE the WMS nestie compatible stamps!!}. Stamped the images from Asian Additions onto white with early espresso and taken with teal and fussy cut. Layered onto the labels 18 die cuts and popped one image. Added some crinkled seam binding from Etsy, a SU early espresso grosgrain ribbon, and that wonderful lace from Wild Orchid Crafts. Everything {just about anywho} is popped with foam dots from jodymorrow {confessionsofaribbonaddict.com}.

Here's the sketch...













Wonderful sketch!!

Okay guys, it's hump day and getting closer to Friday and stampin' all weekend long {or, at least, I hope so!!}

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
