Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - WMSC25 - A Little Joy

It's Saturday - and time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Are you ready for it??!

I was counting up how many Christmas cards I've made so far and I need about 15 more - so surprise, surprise - I used the sketch to make a Christmas card! It worked up really quickly and is easy to reproduce - just what we need as we come down to the wire right?!

I used two Waltzingmouse stamp sets on my card today - Big Blooms - Poinsettia and the Joy piece of the sentiment 'boundle of Joy' from Frame It. I stamped the poinsettia on the white panel then sponged the edges and mounted it to gold and blue panels. My card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".
So come along and join us in the sketch challenge this week - you don't have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps but if you have some please do!
Check out the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created using this week's sketch.
Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 12/2/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Sometimes Claire offers little random winner prizes too - you never know!
