WMS Sketch Challenge #3

Another quick post, this time a card for the current Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch challenge (WMSC3).  Today is the first time I have managed to get my card done the day before the challenge closes!  Maybe next week I can get it done two days before!!!   Anywhoo.... another lovely sketch was provided for our enjoyment.    I had thought I might combine the sketch with a color challenge, but ended up taking a few steps out of my box (ie comfort zone) and came up with my own color combo.  When I was all finished, I was really quite happy with what I had chosen.  I used some yummy Cosmo Cricket Material Girl papers as my jumping off point, threw in some colors from SU! and PTI and mixed them all up!   A bit o' distressing was done on this card and I had to laugh when I realized just how much it looked like the card I had made the JUGs challenge (see this post here)!   I used a stamp from WMS Very Vintage Labels 4 set and stamps from the Taylored Expressions set  CreativiTea (the teapot and sentiment).



Two posts in one night!  That's a little much.  Anyway..... thanks for taking a peek!   And as the Head Mousetress herself, Claire, would say:  "hope it tickles"!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Baja Breeze; PTI Vintage Cream; PP:  Cosmo Cricket Material Girl; Ink:  SU! Groovy Guava & Baja Breeze; Stamps:  WMS Very Vintage Labels 4; Taylored Expressions CreativiTea; Ribbon:  PTI Melon Berry; Button:  SU!

This is ABSOLUTELY my cup of tea, Rosie! Mmmmm, baby! Those colors are smashing! Hearing about the evolution of this card made me so delighted to be a crafter - I TRULY appreciate your journey! And the end result - brilliance! I had to click and enlarged the photo to see if you had actually stamped that beautiful tea pot/frame, paper pieced or whether or not it was a pre-made EMBELLI! It's gorgeous! {Like YOU!}
