A Waltzingmouse Kindness

Congratulations to Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge on their 100th challenge! I wanted to join in on the festivities, so I cooked up this card today, after not having much mojo the past week...it felt good to get back into the saddle again. Here's the card I came up with using the design pictured below:


I added a bunch of bling...a silver ribbon buckle, pearl flowers, netted silver pearl accoutrements and some Zva Creative pearl flourishes:


The sentiment panel is made with two different Waltzingmouse sets, Vintage Labels 18 is the outline design and and the sentiment and box that houses it comes from the Fancy Phrases set.


This week's design:


I based my card from this week's Featured Stamper, Rita Wright (aka kyann22). You can see her card pictured here. I kept the neutral color palette, the flowers and the gratitude sentiment. As per the rules, I changed the design, omitted the bow and added some major bling. (Cos that makes me happy...)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

  4. I've been kind of feeling the same way too, Diva Sistah! I think part of my problem is having too much product around! LOL Too many choices! LOVE how you stamped the extra border!! Very cool idea! I'm smitten with WMS too...just got a big order (and then I won a free set! LOL). You must know how I truly adore what you do with bling :) Hugs!

  8. Beautifully done as always, Andrea. You are a master at creating those flower clusters! I always envision myself covered in bling if I tried to use one of those flourishes. Is a glue gun your ancient Chinese secret for the cluster or do glue dots rule - curious minds must know LOL!

  10. Glad to hear I'm not the only one lacking some mojo. :) I am in a slump at the moment.

    I spy some delicate tulle in your cluster, and that is such a lovely touch! The whole card rocks, if you ask me. :)
