Pretty stars!

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Good morning! Time for another sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (WMSC35). I've never made a star shaped card before but I really like how this one turned out. Here's this week's sketch.

I also combined this week's sketch with the color challenge at the Color Throwdown #129, I love this color combo, it reminds me of spring!

I used some pretty papers from the Prima Botanical Collection and Papermania Rose Garden. I used some Webster's Pages for the leaves.

The stamped star is from Seasons of Love - Tags from Waltzingmouse Stamps, I embossed it in white. The sentiment on the tag is from Fancy Phrases also from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The flower I made from canvas using the Sizzix Bigz Die Flowers 3D (randomly my lovely Niall brought me home a roll of canvas the other day, at first I wasn't sure what to do with it but I'm loving playing with it!!) The trinket pin with porcelain bead I made.

I added some seam binding, lace and apple/white baker's twine to the top. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Mischief Maker's creations along with some of the WMS DT at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
