Hugs!

It's Thursday evening and I'm sneaking in my Waltzingmouse sketch challenge card! Picked up a bug this week and didn't know if I'd get it finished. Did most of the layout last WE and last nite I thought I was going to change it a bit but, no energy and no energy tonite either!!

When I started working on this I was playing with a background patterned paper from MME with doilies on it and... "doh".... I can make my own background patterned doily paper using the exact colors I want with WMS's Large Doily set... honestly, I about slapped my forehead!! The gray panel was created using the chevron in Off Beat Backgrounds with versamark on basic gray paper (versamark shows up a lot stronger on darker colors). The last panel was made using Heirloom Patterns. That sweet fairy (Heroines Fairy Princess) was stamped on XPress It blending cardstock and colored with copics and fussy cut. Added glitter to the wand and wings. Sentiment is from Teeny Trees. Added a seam binding bow (Ribbon Carousel), bloom, and bling. Here's the Waltzingmouse Stamp link.

This is just too darn cute! Love that yummy ribbon w/flower! Sorry to hear about your bug...you need to squash him real quickly!

She's adorable and I love how you created all that background paper! I too forget that I can often create just the background I want with my own stamps instead of searching through my stash. Love the pop of red with the ribbon and accents on little princess! And hope you get to feeling much better soon.
