It's been a busy week! I'm glad it's the weekend. The weather looks good for the next few days, nice n' sunny and warm too! We'll be in the garden, lots to do!! So, here's my card for this week's sketch (WMSC43) at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here's the sketch, I like this one!
I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown #137, I love this color combo, really cheerful!
I used Very Vintage Labels No.18 by Waltzingmouse Stamps for the label, embossed in white. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases. I recycled an old cardboard box to make the label!
For the gingham flowers I stamped the large gingham pennant from Vintage Banners by Waltzingmouse Stamps in yellow a few times and die cut some flowers using the Tattered Florals die. I love the pattern, I added some velvet brads to the centers.
I added a little more gingham under the flower in the form of a bow. The little teal crochet flower is from Annie Design at Etsy. I added the button to the centre.
The leaves I made using the dotty heart from the Sweethearts set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. Here's how I made them, they're very quick n' easy!
Stamp your heart in chosen color, cut along the centre about three quarters of the way.
Overlap the sides, you can completely overlap them for a narrower leaf or just slightly overlap for a wider leaf shape.
Glue down and pinch slightly along the centre. There you have a simple leaf shape from a heart!
The background is embossed using the swiss dots embossing folder and rubbed with a yellow ink pad. Ok, don't forget to visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge to see the amazing creations from the ladies! Have a great weekend!! : )
