Ginny -  please  email Adela at with your choice of template - the organizer or the scalloped cards bag.

And now - onto the card that I made for today's Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch which is based on a card that DT member Belinda made.

And here's my card.
I'm flying right past summer into Halloween with my sketch card today!   I created the birch tree background by sponging over a stencil called Aspen Trees.  The scallop tags are Spellbinders and the stars and boo stamp are from Midnight Feast.  I used Ranger Distress Iced Spruce Ink - I love how it looks - spooky dark but not too dark!  I tied wrinkled seam tape and Glitter Eyelash Yarn through the top of the tags.
If you'd like to play along with this cool WMS sketch this week - you'll find all the details and the place to link up your card here.  You could win a Waltzingmouse stamp set!

And don't forget to check out my post below -  you can leave a comment there for more chances to win until Sun 7/29 11:59 pm EST !

I'm also entering this card in the Twisted Tuesday Challenge -  this week it's to have a tree on your card and the twist is to have a knotted ribbon. - I knotted my ribbons through the hole in the tag!
