Made with LOVE...WMSC33 46

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 5, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | , , ,

Hi there! It's time for another awesome Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! My dear sister Tina asked me to make this Valentine's Day card for her co-worker's wife :)
Sometimes (most times) I allow the sketch to drive me bonkers, trying to follow it precisely. It's not until I come to terms with myself with a friendly reminder "it's a sketch for inspiration". Once I think outside the box, things seem to fall into place :)
 One of the MANY things I love about Claire's images is not only their unique style but how various ones are fit perfectly with a coordinating Spellbinders die template. All the label sets come with a variety of sizes to fit a specific die template providing endless opportunities to use all the stamps in a set.
I stamped an image from Very Vintage Labels No. 10 with VersaMark ink, embossed using white embossing powder, stamped a few flourishes, adhered a pretty Prima flower in place, topped it off with a Spring Moss Vintage crinkly ribbon bow and a lil' tag made using a sentiment from Victorian Frippery. Tina was quite pleased and I hope her friend's wife will be too :)

Thanks for looking! Please be sure to stop by the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for some amazing inspiration from the Mischief Makers and several other Waltzingmouse DT members :) I'll be back tomorrow with an all new CR84FN challenge. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 10, Victorian Frippery
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S5-022 Labels Ten, S4-229 Labels Five, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances
Ribbon: Spring Moss Vintage crinkly ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot

I'm not very good with sketches as I always feel the need to copy the sketch totally - although I may turn it on its side. Your card is so beautiful, I love the colours - so fresh. The flower and ribbon are gorgeous.
Have a great weekend.

I do the exact same thing!! I always try to follow them to a 't', which is so out of character for me in my day to day attitude... but then when I let it go, I always love what I come up with.

I love your seam binding bows, you really know how to tie a mean one! haha :)

Greetings Mona!!!

My husband, Beau, works with Tina and I am the LUCKY lady who received this gorgeous card on Valentine's Day. It is absolutely breathtaking. I automatically felt so special just knowing that he went out of his way to give me such a beautiful card but then once he told me he asked for it to be made specifically for me, well, you just can't top that :) I brought it to work to show it off to all my co-workers, it truly is one of a kind. I will treasure it forever, thank you so much.


Thank you so much for leaving a sweet comment!
