Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #4



Another weekend means another sketch from Claire Brennan of Waltzingmouse Stamps!  This one she admitted herself is a bit key-razy!   She even gave us permission to go a bit wild with it, and that is what I did!

I used WMS's Earth Angel and Pic-Nic Patterns sets for the sketch: 
(Edited to add:  This was the card that was named in the Top 3 at the Sketch Blog and earned me my Waltzingmouse Top Mouse Blinkie! My first blinkie ever!  Thanks to Claire and all of the WMS ladies!)

It is difficult to tell but I paper-pierced the grid pattern instead of using different papers.  Made the sweet girl's dress using a combo of patterns from Pic-Nic Patterns.  As you can see I was liberal on my use of the circle shape...but I could NOT resist that jump rope image any longer!

Don't forget to visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog yourself and post a card before Thursday at midnight.  If 100 people play during this round, Claire is randomly drawing the name of a participant to win a free stamp set of their choice, yay!  This is a huge win, because she is releasing new stamps this week!!

Kelly, this is a very sweet card. I love her little dress and the way you've stamped and paper pieced it. Simply adorable. Those flowers are a perfect finishing touch to the sentiment too x
