WMS Saturday Sketch - Bravo!

 Yippee!  it's Saturday - again!   Welcome dear friends!  I hope one of the fun things you will do this weekend (or in the coming week!) is create a card using this great sketch Claire designed for us -  using the 'oh, so trendy' banners! (of course you could stamp something else besides a banner too!)
It just so happnens that Waltzingmouse released two banner stamp sets on March 1, Vintage Banners and Bitty Banners.   I used stamps from Bitty Banners on my sketch card today.

The bunting, the banner and the little star are all from Bitty Banners.   My BRAVO! sentiment is from Fancy Phrases.  The cute little chipboard elephant is from a chipboard circus set called Kids from Michaels. 

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 3/24/11 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse !!

Winners are announced each Saturday along with the new sketch challenge. And every week one lucky entry will win a free WMS stamp set of choice!!

I can't wait to see what you create!!

Paper:  White, Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest - PTI
