WMS Saturday Sketch Challenge - No Peeking!

Hurray!  The weekend has arrived!  -  I had a long hard week at work and I'm so happy that Saturday is finally here.

And that also means it's time for the Waltzingmouse Sketch  -  what more could you ask for!?!  Claire has a really fun ornament/tag sketch for us today -  and that's just what I created.  It  could be an ornament or a gift tag -  or a gift tag that can be used as an ornament after the gift is opened?!?!


I used some new toys in creating my ornament/tag today -  I just got these  2011 Heirloom Ornament dies from Spellbinders - as well as this Spiral Blooms One die that I used for my larger flower. I made the flower with some pretty paper from Basic Grey called Out of Print - it actually has snow flakes on it!  The smaller felt flower was made with a die from MFT.

I used stamps from Victorian Fripperie, Off Beat Backgrounds and Around Christmastime directly on the ornament shape and added a jumbo eyelet to tie my hanging ribbon through.

I cut the ornament again from this pretty piece of patterned paper and adhered it to the back of the tag so the back looks finished off.

Let's see what this simple sketch inspires you to create!   Link it up over at the WMS Sketch Challenge Blog and you could win a free WMS stamp set!
