Better Late Than Never Sketch

I didn't get to post a project for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, but I just had to work on something this weekend because it is SUCH a good sketch from Claire!

Here is my card (I stepped away from the Christmas images for just one second, they'll be back SOON)!


I used the beautiful wreath and sentiment from Peace and Plenty.  I colored the wreath with Copic markers, and then covered it with Martha Stewart clear coarse glitter.  I made a wreath like this last year, but I didn't have Copics at that time.  They sure do make my wreath more vibrant!  Made a felt flower using My Favorite Things Mini Rolled Rose die with Harvest Gold felt.  The background woodgrain paper is from A muse Studio, and the grid paper is from October Afternoon's 5& Dime Collection.

Add your project to the link list HERE before this Friday, November 18th.  Be sure to use at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Peace and Plenty, Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, A Muse Studio woodgrain patterned paper, October Afternoon 5&Dime Collection
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Copic markers
Other:  twine, Martha Stewart Clear Coarse glitter, My Favorite Things Mini Rolled Rose die, PTI's Harvest Gold felt

I will agree it is a beautiful sketch indeed. You card more than does it justice Kelly. That shimmery wreath is divine, especially with all that fancy cutting and coloring perfection. Loving the graph paper against the woodgrain. So so lovely!

This is such a pretty Thanksgiving card Kelly. I love the rolled felt flower and your glittery, sparkly wreath with Peace and Plenty is gorgeous. Add that one to my list of "Going to get one of these days!"
