WMS Saturday Sketch - Easter Blessings

It's Saturday which means it's time to check out this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch for inspiration! 
It's a pretty simple one with a little bit of embossing on it!  Pretty fun isn't it?!

I decided to go for one more Easter card -  Just in time huh?!


My stamps are from the WMS Nestie Eggs set which happily fit in the Nested Eggs Nestabilities.  I stamped my egg, cut it with the die and sponged the egg before taking it out of the die.  I added a little strip of grass below the sentiment and popped it over the ribbon with foam tape.  Just click on the pic to see it larger.

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 at least one Waltzingmouse stamp and the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 4/28/11 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!!

This also fits the Crazy4Challenges challenge today -  to make an Easter card!
