Sunshine Sketch

It's a sunshiny day at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge as we get to introduce a NEW Mischief Maker!  The lovely Jeanne Jachna has joined the team!  Her creations always have that WOW factor, and I get so excited to click on her sketch links!  She is going to be a wonderful addition to the team, yippee!

Now on to this week's sketch by sweet Lynn Mercurio!  It's based on her totally awesome French Country card seen HERE!


Here's my card...


I have been so busy at work that I haven't had much time to stamp lately.  So I went HOG WILD on this card, heee!  I used the adorable new sets Half Pint Heroines and Compact Family with this cheerful new patterned paper from Simple Stories called "Summer Fresh"!


The little sunshine image, the fresh summer days panel, and the denim square come in the line.  I just cut them out and they were ready to go!  Added some gold Liquid Pearls to make the sun...shine!


Stamped the balloon on the gingham paper and the basket on a little piece that looks like burlap.  PS...I am finding it very hard not to add hair accessories to the little Half Pints!

It's your turn to play along!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, May 25th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project as a randomly-selected player will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Half Pint Heroines & Compact Family, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Simple Stories "Summer Fresh" collection, PTI white and Pure Poppy
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers, Fresh Ink in Navy
Other:  Zva Creative navy pearls, Liquid Pearls in gold, blue and yellow twine from Olive Manna, buttons from PTI and A Muse Studio
