Don't be afraid...WMS August Previews Day 3 54

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, August 23, 2012 @ 1:00 AM | , ,

Hi there dear blogging friends! Welcome to Day 3 of the August Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews! Today, Claire and many of the DT members are sharing projects featuring Little Lanterns, Bright Season and Light of the World Sentiments.

I made a card featuring combining Little Lanterns and Light of the World Sentiments.
Both of these sentiments are jam packed with many images that may be easily mixed and matched! 
To create my card, I stamped the elegant lantern and candle from  Little Lanterns using VersaMark ink, embossed using fine white embossing powder then stamped the candle glow using SU Barely Banana ink. I stamped one of the many sentiments from Light of the World Sentiments next to the lantern.
 I created a window using a Die-namics Designer Labels 2 STAX die then I stamped the Shine sentiment on the underlying piece of MFT Heavyweight Cardstock Whip Cream.
 For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Unscripted Sketches challenge:
Please be sure to stop by the following designers blogs to see what they have created: Anya Schrier, Becca Feeken, Belinda Chang Langner, Bonnie Sharp, Clare Buswell, Julia AstonJennifer Holmes, Kelly Schirmer, Laurie Schmidlin, Lynn Mercurio, Mona Pendleton (that's me), Sandie Dunne, Sarah Martina Parker, Tosha Leyendekker and Claire Brennan (Owner).

Thanks so much for visiting! I will be back tomorrow with a project to share for the WMS August Blog Waltz.
Be Sweet :)
