Balm of Friendship Sketch

Happy weekend!  I really couldn't wait for this one to get here what with all of that nice weather...and now the temps are going from 80's back down to the 50's-60's for Saturday and Sunday!  Oh well, at least it's not snowing!

Here's something that cheered me up...a new sketch by Renee Lynch for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!


Here is my card...


I turned the sketch to the right and added a label from Rescue Remedies.  Helen Berry's Top Mouse card here, from two weeks ago, inspired me to take out Pic-Nic Patterns and stamp those sweet little blooms!  The whole card started to come together in my mind after receiving the "Double Dutch" patterned paper line from Lily Bee Design in the mail.  There are even a bunch of sheets that are just different colors of gingham!  (I stamped the label on the tan one).  The flowers are actually on two separate panels as seen on the sketch, but then I ended up covering the seam with a bow...well, since it matched the papers so well :)

Now it's your turn to play along!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, March 31st.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your creation to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Oh Kelly, love you and your gingham! Those are the cutest flowers and they go so well with that patterned paper. I always love the rescue remedy labels. They make such a gorgeous focal point.
