WMS PJ Party-With Gratitude!!

Waltzingmouse Stamps {click on the link for the deets} is now having a monthly....

 There are themes... and four challenges... well, I could be wrong 4 themes and a sketch...and prizes!!

The first challenge is Thanks....

Here's my card...


"Kay it's one or maybe two... well if we are counting "three" layers... but, CAS for me!! In total disclosure... I tried ribbon/ twine/enamel dots... but, kept coming back to the basics. SAT ON MY HANDS! Hope you like it!!

I pulled out WMS Peace & Plenty... and the Crackle Background ... perfect for this sweet shaker basket of apples!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

I forgot about this lovely shaker basket - love how you've paired it with the crackled background Vickie! The red of the apples really pop against the greys!

The basket looks so lovely on the crackle background - I wouldn't have thought of teaming those two together but what a wonderful combo they make!

Know just what you mean about sitting on your hands! Haven't mastered that. Your card is perfect, unribboned. Especially with the eye going straight to the apples! With the sweet sentiment, who needs more?

Love it Vickie! I have to agree with Marybeth, happy that you sat on your hands, it is perfect just the way it is.

Vickie your coloring and shading are just beautiful...love those pretty red apples which look like they really shine. Great choice with the crackle background.

Hahaha ... most of us probably have flat hands every so often, Vickie! What a great combination of colours ... the crackle background gives such 'texture' ... fabulous just as it is! Anita :)
