First of all Happy World Cardmaking Day!! I should be doing something crafty today, I'm going to the Great Big Craft Extravaganza (GBCE) held in Athlone, Co.Westmeath here in Ireland. I am pretty excited to be going, there aren't many craft events held here. It's a little more special because I'll get to meet some online cardmaking friends including Claire from Waltzingmouse Stamps!! I'm just up for the day, it's a bit of a drive but I've managed to book one of the workshops - flower embellishments! I couldn't resist! Ok, anyway it's time for another new sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. This one could be a tag or ornament or you could work it into a card.
I stamped some paper using Pic-Nic Patterns from Waltzingmouse Stamps and made a rosette using the Sizzix rosette die (how did I live so long without it!) I stamped one of the doily centers from Dainty Doilies - Large set for the middle.
The sentiment is from Say it Loud - Winter Holiday but the word was just Holiday so I added the 's' from one of the other words. I stamped a long strip using Gingham & Co and made a paper ruffle (yep just like the other ones!) this time I just joined up the ends and made a rosette from it!
I added some gold bells (love these at Christmas!) and made a large bow from some wired gold ribbon. I added some brown seam binding to the top for the loop.
It turned out pretty large! So I guess it would make a nice ornament too! Don't forget to check out what the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS DT have come up with at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog. Hopefully I'll get some good snaps at the show!! : ) Happy Cardmaking Day!!
