you are MISSED...WMSC39 57

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 19, 2011 @ 12:38 AM | , ,

Hi there! Do you have anything fun going on this weekend? I am planning a fun date night with my hubby :) He loves to go the movie theater so I am going to surprise him and take him to this awesome place called iPic Theatre~the ultimate movie experience! Have you ever been? We haven't but I sure have heard nothing but great things so I am looking forward to it!

It's time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge:
and here's my take on it:
What? No patterned paper? Nope, I challenged myself to create my own so I pulled out Big Blooms - Chrysanthemums stamping both sizes of the solid blooms then adding the pretty leaf images from Faux Fun Circles.

For color inspiration, I played along with this week's color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. If you would like to see some wonderful inspiration, be sure to see what the PDCC DT created!
I hadn't made anything using this particular darling pennant image from Bitty Banners as of yet, so I inked up both the polka dot and the plaid image so I did just that! A die template from S5-028 Nested Pennants was used to cut/emboss each little pennant.
That's all I have to share today, so I hope you have enjoyed what I made and maybe feel inspired to play along! 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 Bitty Banners, Fancy Phrases, Big Blooms - Chrysanthemums, Faux Fun Circles    
Die Templates and Machine: Spellbinders™Shapeabilities® S5-028 Nested Pennants, S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants, GC-001 Grand Calibur
