A Shabby Chic Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

I loved the Waltzingmouse Sketch for this week, and the Mischief Makers are quite inspiring!!
I used 4 different sets on this card, but it came together rather quickly once I decided what I wanted to do:  Cabin Plaid Backgrounder (Right Banner), Holiday Labels No. 14 (Frame), Vintage Garden Seed Packet (Thank You), and Gingham and Co. (Left Banner)

The Cabin Plaid was stamped with Shell (a muse) pigment ink and I'm afraid it was next to impossible to photograph.  But, irl, it's really soft and pretty.

For the base, I inked up the negative side of a woodgrain embossing folder (Sizzix), with Latte pigment ink (amuse).  I love the soft distressed look it gave.

That about sums up today's card.  Be sure to check out the WMS Sketch Challenge.  We'd love to see your take on the sketch!!

Happy Stamping!

That wood grain embossing just sets this over the edge crazy good! Love the soft colors, and all the texture you achieved - gorgeous Tosh!
