Sunny Sketch

Happy Saturday!  That means it's time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!  Here is #43!


And here is my sunny interpretation:



Used the thin plaid strip from Pic-Nic Patterns for the background, and also to make a little patch of grass under the treeline.  The "sunshine", trees, birdies, and sentiment are from Teeny Trees .  The sun rays are made with Divine Twine, and the apples are cranberry pearls from A Muse Studio. Cardstock in Vintage Cream and Lemon Tart by Papertrey Ink.

Now it's your turn to play along!  Be sure to directly link your creations with this sketch HERE, within the specified time frame.  Each week, one randomly-selected participant will receive a free Waltzingsmouse Stamp set of choice! Play as many times as you would like! 

Please note, there has been a small change regarding the requirements for the weekly sketch challenge. Previously, there were no restrictions about the images you could use for the weekly Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge. But since we all love Waltzingmouse Stamps, going forward we ask that you use at least one WMS image on your submission. Including WMS images on your project adds to the creative inspiration we get each week from your wonderful creations.



Be sure to stop by the other Mischief Makers' blogs to see their lovely creations, and have a great week!  Hoping you see some sunshine in your neck of the woods!

A lovely happy scene, I like the tartan (or is it gingham as it's one colour?) sky and the sunny sun. Very sweet!

What a delightful card!! Love the sun - how in the world did you get the rays attached??! And the picnic plaid background is the perfect touch. Summer can't get here fast enough!

Also, I just want to say thank you for your lovely comments, current and past, on my card creations. I truly appreciate the feedback. And I know it takes a little extra effort to leave a comment in the gallery. (One of these days I'll get my blog up and running!)
