End of an Era- WMSC129

It is the last weekly Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge ever and so to commemorate this sad occasion I managed to make a card. I will miss the weekly inspiration. Although I often did not have time to enter I always checked it out and enjoyed seeing the creations by the Mischief Makers and fellow WMS fans. 

The 129th sketch is courtesy of Edna Morrisedie:
Here is my card:
My daughter requested a birthday card for a friend who likes all things French and feminine, so I was able to have some fun with a number of Waltzingmouse stamps.
I even made a beaded stick pin, with a hanging doodad. This was from a deconstructed wine glass marker found in the big box store clearance bin.

The paper flower is a dollar store find, and I sprayed a wee bit of shimmer mist across it. A little peek inside to show that I sometimes dress up the insides of cards, too. Farewell, WMS Weekly Sketch Challenge. I look forward to seeing what Claire dreams up for 2013 to keep us busy.
