100th Sketch!

It's a celebration at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog today, as the 100th sketch is being posted!  That's 100 wonderful sketches from Claire, the Mischief Makers, and Design Team members alike!  Did you know that you can always access all of the past sketches in the gallery HERE?

This week, there are prizes to be had including a REALLY fun one that I'll tell you about at the end of this post!  But for now, here is SKETCH 100!

And my card...


I love me a Nordic Butterfly!  Today I paired it with the beautiful doily images from the Dainty Doilies-Large Set.  I am a bit obsessed with the papers from the "Summer Fresh Collection" by Simple Stories.  Love the patterns and colors, and thought that these images worked very well with them.  The sentiment is from the original Compact Sentiments, stamped in a frame cut with the Labels 25 Nestabilities.  The coordinating frame image is from French Country.

Now it's your turn to upload a creation HERE!  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project.  This week, there are special prizes up for grabs.  First, if we have 50 players that enter, Claire will give away 1 free stamp set of choice to 2 randomly-selected players!  If 100 people enter, there will be 3 prizes given out, and so on!  (Wouldn't it be cool to have 150 players in one week?  Eek!)

Also the biggie...from all of the participants, one Guest Mischief Maker will be chosen!!!  This guest will play along with the Mischief Makers for the next 4 weeks and receive a special discount and blog badge!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!  Happy 100th sketch!

So adorable...love that butterfly in the red with the blue center, your card reminds me of 4th of July in the country. My favorite little touch that you added is the sweet little yellow flower by the butterfly, so sweet. Thank you for always leaving sweet and kind comments on my blog.
