Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch #11 - Good Luck!

Please scroll down to my post below to see my Speedy the Cats' Friends Challenge card - Harvest Theme!

Are you ready for this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch?!?! Well - here it is - in all its glory!!


And here's my card using the sketch. It seems that every card I make lately is shabby chic! I went from not being able to create in that style to not being able to stop! I guess it all started when I was trying to create something for last Tuesday's Friends of WMS challenge in the forum when Shabby Chic was the theme! Now I kind of get the hang of how to do it!
I used a Big Scalloped Circle Nestabilities to cut my round card and a circle Nestability to cut the center image. My circle is stamped with a label from Vintage Circles Small, the flower, bird and sentiment are from Asian Gardens. The tag and heart are cut with a Sizzix dies. Then I added a vintage shimmery button, some sticky pearls and wrinkled seam binding.
Everything is sponged in Ranger Tea Dye & Mustard Seed Inks.
So waltz on over to the WMS Sketch Blog and find out what the Mischief Makers have created this week for our inspiration! Then make up your own card using the sketch and link it there - you could be a Top Mouse next week!!
I appreciate your stopping by today!
