It's been a long week, little Isabelle was under the weather and wasn't sleeping very well. So we're all a bit tired and cranky! She's on the mend though and it's a long weekend here so we have an extra day to relax! It's time for a new sketch (WMSC50) at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and Edna (fellow Mischief Maker) came up with this great sketch for us.
I also took my inspiration from this week's Tuesday Trigger : Classically Modern at Moxie Fab World. I love the stunning blue and white color scheme, the fab detail on the bedspread (it reminded me of dry embossing), that gorgeous mirror just like a reflective pearl. I added a touch of pink with some pink and white baker's twine from The Ribbon Reel and a little green on my sentiment echoing the vase of flowers.
I don't usually mix creams and whites but here I thought the cream just softened the look slightly. Sometimes blue and white on their own can look a little cold.
I die cut the label using Spellbinders grommet tag dies. The sentiment is from Half Pint Heroes by Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped in VersaMagic Tea Leaves.
I added a mix of cream and white seam binding for my bow. The pearl and porcelain bead trinket pin I made (I just love porcelain beads!)
I stamped the polka dot squares using Gingham & Co by Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped in Memento Danube Blue. Dark blue it not a color I use that often but I love how fresh it looks with whites and creams. I embossed the white border using the Cuttlebug roses embossing folder. The beautiful flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also made this card with The Daring Cardmakers June flowers challenge in mind, to use Roses or Honeysuckle or both!
Don't forget to pop over to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog to see the fabulous creations from the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS DT. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! We're enjoying a few warm days here at the moment. I hope it's sunny where you are!! : )
