Take Care

I'm so in love with the new Waltzingmouse images!! Truly!! I just couldn't resist making a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!!


I started off by stamping one of the images from Text-It, with Frayed Burlap Ranger Distress ink, onto Kraft cs. I then stamped the Reverse Polka-Dots, from the Gingham & Co. set, over it with Tattered Rose Ranger Distress Ink. ( It's a bit hard to see. If you click on the photo below it's a bit easier.) Then I stamped different sizes of the Doilies, from the set Dainty Doilies Large set, with Vintage Cream PTI Pigment Ink. Now, I have to tell you, Claire's images stamp beautifully!! I purposely stamped them sloppily for a more distressed, shabby chic look. Lastly, I added
two sentiments from the Say it Loud set. LOVE the large elegant font with the smaller font.

That about sums up today's card. Now head on over to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the Mischief Makers have been up to. They are one creative bunch, I tell ya!!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!!
Happy Stamping!
