A Vintage Heart...WMSC31 52

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 22, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Any big weekend plans? Not sure what my hubby and I are going to do but I know it will hopefully involve football and crafting time :) It's time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and don't forget about the celebration that is going on with Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please be sure to visit Claire's blog for COMPLETE details!
I have to admit this sketch was quite the challenge for me ~ so I had to take some liberty with this one :) The wavy border is what threw me for a loop so I pulled out a LF-161 Grand Labels One die template to create the border. What do you think? Close enough?

To make the lil' tag I inked up the WITH love sentiment from Sweethearts ~ this set is jam packed with so many beautiful & useful sentiments & images that can be used year round to make projects for your loved ones! The Vintage heart embellishment was made using a combination of a S4-296 Nested Hearts die template and a piece of Pearl Precious Metal Premium craft foil. Once I cut/embossed the heart shape, I used a fine sanding block to reveal the metal underneath. I LOVE the Pearl foil ~ my FAVE color!
That's all for today ~ thanks so much for looking! Please visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for more inspiration from the Mischief Makers & some of the Waltzingmouse DT :) See you tomorrow for an all new CR84FN challenge!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sweethearts
Die Templates & Machine: Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® LF-161 Grand Labels One, S4-296 Nested Hearts, F-012 Precious Metals Premium Craft Foils (Pearl), GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye State of the Heart Collection
