Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch WMSC19

Happy Saturday dear friends! Don't weekend days feel wonderful?! and to top it all off - Claire has a fun new sketch for us! An easy peasy one that we can do simple or all embellished!
I went the clean and simple route today. I printed a piece of Waltzingmouse Celtic Squares Digital paper for my base. Then I stamped the sentiment from Irish Blessings directly on the paper. I cut the shamrocks with the smallest Nested Egg nestability, embossed and sponged it and added a little gem to each one - not sure if that shows up or not on my pic....?

I wrapped some baker's twine around twice, tied a bow and adhered the shamrock with foam dimensionals - oh - and I sponged the edges of the patterned paper which sort of turned up the corners!

My card also works for the SCS challenge HYCCT05 - to use twine.

You know the drill by now! - go check out the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created this week!

Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 10/21/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Sometimes Claire offers little random winner prizes too - you never know!
