Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch - Hugs

Wow - can it really be Saturday so soon?!? It seems like I was just posting last week's sketch and here's another one ready to inspire us!

And here's my take on it today!

I white embossed the large outline flower from Big Blooms - Chrysanthemums and cut it out. I stamped the big solid leaf from the set on the panel and adhere the bloom over them with foam tape. I tied the wrinkled seam tape around the panels. I sponged the purchased tag and stamped it with one of the little leaf stamps and sentiment from Teeny Trees. Then I tied the tag around the seam binding. To finish it off - I added the bling to the tag and the corner.

This card is also for the Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast today - I was inspired by these lovely flowers

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 2/17/11 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse !!

Winners are announced each Saturday along with the new sketch challenge. And there just may be a WMS stamp set to be won too! Last week the prize was 'Sweet Hearts'!!!

beautiful card, love the big flower and stamping on the tag! (The molds are so much fun, the polymer clay is easy to use, I'm thinking about giving resin a go too! Betsy Veldman had a bit about using these molds on her blog recently, you should check it out.)
