Play Date with Waltzingmouse

Here I am with another Play Date Cafe Challenge (#117)  entry. When I saw the colours this week I knew it would be tough, but I did my best with what supplies I had on hand.


For my design, I chose to loosely follow this week's sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, which was:
So here's the card:

I used a strip stamp of Battenburg to create a ribbon. I went with a hand-dyed rayon seam binding bow instead of a heart, and I embellished it with a Prima floral glass cabochon. It was tough getting a photo of it due to the reflection.

I created three simple stickpins by stamping some small motifs, cutting them out and glueing them to the heads of some dull flower head quilting pins. I added pearls that I coloured with a Copic marker. The sentiment was popped up with 3-D glue dots. All stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Oooo, this turned out beautifully, Charmaine! I like the large scalloped focal point, and that cabochon - oh my, so pretty!

Thanks a bunch for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe this week. :)

Why do I not have a cabochon in my stash, Charmaine! It might be the only thing that is missing but not for long :) Gorgeous colors and patterns all tied up with a beautiful bow!

My new word of the day is cabochon. Never heard that one before, but I will certainly remember it because of your beautiful card. There were so many pretty elements in this card, so well thought out and executed.
