WMS Saturday Sketch Challenge - Welcome Baby with a Flourish!

Today I've got a card for the Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch Challenge. DT member Belinda was the designer of this great little sketch.
And here's my card!


For my center circle I used a stamp from an older WMS set called Vintage Circles Small.  The sentiments are from Say It Loud (an absolutely WONDERFUL and versatile sentiment set!) and the flourishes are from the newly released Flourishes - Scallops and Dots set.

Something I just discovered when I pulled out the flourish stamps for this card -  Claire has included a 'right and left' or 'mirror image' of each flourish (accept for the largest one) - so, for example, when I wanted the same flourish on each side of my circle as on my card above -  I had it!  I was thinking I would have to use a similar but not matching one and that's when I discovered this fact! (duh!)  When I used this set in the sneak peeks - I only used the largest flourish so I didn't notice this then!  Our Claire is always thinkin'!!

So -  go check out the WMS Sketch Challenge blog for all the deets and to see the wonderful samples created by the Mischief Makers as well as a few of  the DT.  You could win a free WMS stamp set by linking your creation over there!  Winners are announced each Saturday along with the new sketch challenge.

I'm off to visit my 'oh so adorable' 9 month old grandnephew Landon - my sister (his grandmother) is babysitting today and we're going to sit and adore him together!! LOL!!!  And  I might get to visit my other 1 month old grandnephew, James (Landon's new cousin) this weekend too!  

Here's Landon - The avid Boston Red Sox Fan

and here's James - all decked out for the 4th of July! on his first trip to the family cottage in Maine.
