WMSC45... tassels!

Saturday, April 30, 2011

We have another great sketch for you this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (WMSC#45), this week it's all about tassels or whatever you'd like to have dangling from your card. Here's the sketch.

I experimented with a few different tassels, pearl, bead combos but in the end I just went with some plaited seam binding!

The papers are from Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden, I stamped some text from Text-It by Waltzingmouse Stamps in Tea Leaves VersaMagic. I also used one of the gorgeous labels from Very Vintage Labels No.18.

I layered a die cut from Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two over the label. The little tag is stamped with a sentiment from Fancy Phrases. The pretty flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I added a little lace to the edge for my scalloped border. Oh and I threaded the scrunchy seam binding through the fancy tag.

Just a note, it is a requirement now to use at least one Waltzingmouse image on your submission when you play along. Oh and if you didn't know already, one lucky participant is randomly chosen each week to win a Waltzingmouse Stamp set of choice!!
