Bonjour!!

Finished my Waltzingmouse sketch card... YEAH me!! Had something laid out and then got busy with bookclub/life and was able to get it done tonite!! This week Renee Lynch is the "hostess with the mostest" and designed the sketch.

My card...


I went a little "frou frou"- the background is stamped with a gorgeous image from WMS Victorian Frippery. Sponged a little SU pink pirouette to soften the bg. Layered a spellbinders labels 18 after stamping an outline stamp from WMS Vintage Labels 18 in versamark for a softer effect. Cameo image from WMS Cameo Maker was stamped in Graphite Brilliance Black onto SU pink pirouette on an embossed spellbinders oval and mounted on a spellbinders oval. Distressed some edges and added a sentiment from Victorian Frippery. My corners were made with a spellbinders die. Waltzingmouse Stamps connection here. You may wish I hadn't sent you there once you check it out.... there are some stamps that are fabulous!!

Here's Renee's sketch...

Tomorrow's Friday.... pop back for this weeks' I Spy sketch and links to play along!!

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

Loving the frou frou take on this :) The paper is fabulous, a great colour combo, and the corners are great! Another fabulous one for WMS. I'm going to have to get some book referrals from you. Are you on Goodreads? If not, let me know some of your faves so I can add them to my list. Got a Kindle Fire for my b-day and love it!!
