Easter Blessings Sketch

This week's sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog is by the lovely Karin Akesdotter!  


I think that Karin's sketch says SPRING!


I made a butterfly banner!  I cut a butterfly with an A Muse Studio die and stamped it one of the patterns from Gingham & Co. Chose some inks to match this sweet paper from the Dear Lizzy Neopolitan Collection.  It's funny because the ink names are Mango, Bubblegum, Pistachio, and Peach :)  Yummy all around!


The border is made with the Victorian Lace Border die from PTI.  I stamped the sentiment from Spring Baskets on a petite oval nestie.

Hopefully you will have time this week to play along... it's spring break here, and I hope to find some extra stamping time this week!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, April 13th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice.

Happy Easter!!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Gingham & Co. and Spring Baskets, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Dear Lizzy "Neopolitan Collection" by American Crafts, PTI White cardstock
Ink:  Fresh Ink in Mango and Peach, A Muse Studio Ink in Pistachio and Bubblegum
Other:  A Muse Studio's butterfly die, Papertrey Ink's Victorian Lace Border die, Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities, twine, buttons

Finally got some commenting time after a busy Easter holiday. Hope yours was wonderful!! This is so beautiful Kelly - and I'm so glad you suggested I send Anya some sketches - though it is scary at the same time...
