I'm still pretty excited (and nervous!) after yesterday (see post here!) so I picked some soft muted colors for my card this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge to try and calm myself down a bit!! Here's this week's sketch #55 by the talented Belinda!
I used the soft color palette from this week's color challenge at The Play Date Cafe, isn't it gorgeous!
The light green paper I stamped subtly using Text-It by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The label I stamped in Oasis Green using Holiday Labels No.14. The sentiment is from Roses in Bloom stamped onto some tracing paper.
The lace applique was white and I dyed it in a diluted coffee mix, I prefer using coffee instead of tea, I find the results with tea can be a bit orange tinged.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Don't forget to check out the amazing creations from the rest of the DT at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and play along to be in with a chance of winning a fabby new stamp set of choice!
Ok, I better go make some DIY embellishments. Niall's taken Isabelle shopping so I have a few hours to get some work done!! Oh, here's a few photos from our trip to Co.Donegal.
The view from the house!! There was nothing more relaxing than waking up to this every morning!!
Mount Errigal in the background, highest mountain in Co.Donegal. (That's a donkey in the pic!)
A few sheep just walking along by the side of the road... a regular sight!
The castle at Glenveagh National Park. The gardens were just stunning!
My favorite was the blue border, I love blue flowers!
I love these gates (I have a thing for gates!)
Isabelle made her wishes in the wishing well...
Lots of thought went into them!
She made several!
I hope they come true!! : )
