Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - Back in the Saddle

Welcome once again dear friends, to the Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch! How fun is this to play with??!!


I just couldn't put down the new western stamp sets after working with them for the sneak peeks! Don't you just LOVE this blanket background stamp! Mwahh- it stamps so nicely!!! It's from Way Out West and the funky cowboy get well sentiment is from Back In the Saddle.

I sponged the edges of the card and the sentiment with Scattered Straw Ranger Distress Ink and layered the sentiment on Lacey and Eyelet Square Nestabilities.

To top it off - I added 3 little purple gems for a little sparkle!

Now go 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 3/10/11 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse !!
