A Flower for my friend...


I made today's card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Edna has some fantastically fun sketches to work with, and I had time this week to play around with her charming design using two Waltzingmouse stamp sets: Bitty Banners and Compact Family.

The banners (can you see the little one under the flower), were stamped with Versamark and were embossed with White Embossing powder.

I used a variety of dies also: 2011 Snowflake Pendant (Flower), Standard and Lacey Circles, and Nested Pennants (Spellbinders)

To get the pretty pink and sparkle for the flower, I spritzed plain white cs with Alpine Ice Rose Starburst spray (Lindy's Stamp Gang). I added some Starburst Stickles for some extra sparkle. For the chocolate banner, I spritzed kraft cs with Van Dyke Sepia Moon Shadow Mist (Lindy's Stamp Gang) and a little Alpine Ice Rose, although it's hard to see.

That's it for today. I hope you get to enjoy a nice weekend. I get to spend the day with two dear stamping friends of mine...eating and paper crafting. Two of my absolute favorite things to do. *grin*

Happy Stamping my friends!!
