WMS Fanatics Sketch Challenge


 Here is the fun sketch for this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge:

Sketches can really help kickstart one's creativity. I am exhausted from a tropical vacation - well, not the vacation, but the gruelling travel to get back home - and so my mojo is flagging. Like a drowning man reaching for the life preserver, I was happy for this sketch to get a needed birthday card accomplished.

5 X 6.5 inches
That's a white one layer card. There is no natural light in my basement so I have asked Santa for a light box this year. The flower is from the Waltzingmouse Stamps You're a Doll set, and the sentiment is from the new-to-me Teeny Trees set. I just eyeballed the flower placement, and stamped each one in Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue. Small dollar-store sequins finish them off.
Still lots of time to play in this sketch challenge. I am entering this card in the Seize the Birthday Challenge, too.

Oh I do like these bold blue flowers and the shimmer of the sequins is just fab. Lovely card. Thanks so much for playing along with Waltzingmouse Fanatics this week.

Sounds like you need a holiday :)
