Rosy Sketch

Hooray it's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge time!  Another lovely one this week by Edna Morrisedie:

I went for a love-y theme this week, as Jason and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on May 25th!

Used the Waltzingmouse Stamp sets Musical Backgrounds, Say it Loud, and Very Vintage Labels No.10 for this card. 

These are my first attempts at handmade paper roses!  All I did was cut a piece of scrap paper into a spiral and wound it into a loose rose shape.  Then I cut a separate little half circle shape and glued it in the center to make the rose look more authentic.  I sprayed them (heavily!) with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (one is Yellow Daisy, and one is a Yellow Daisy/Pink Cherub mix). Scrunched and bent the petals into shape while they were still wet.  Let them dry on my window sill for a few days, and then added some glue in spots to hold the spiral together a bit better.

Now it's your turn!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, June 3, and make sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your card to be eligible for the random drawing for a stamp set of choice!

Stamps:  Musical Backgrounds, Say it Loud, and Very Vintage Labels No. 10, all Waltzingmouse Stamps
Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream
Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Black Soot, Antique Linen, Tea Dye, and Vintage Photo
Other:  Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in Cherub Pink and Yellow Daisy, Spellbinders Labels 10 die, Martha Stewart branch punch and white pearls, crocheted trim, cream ribbon, dimensionals

Happy Anniversary lovely Kelly. Hugs. Your card is so lovely and totally befitting. The roses look amazing and absolutely worth the half a bottle of Glimmer Mist and the time they must have taken. Brava! The sheet music looks glorious and is a wonderful tribute to a happy marriage. Just love your creative vision.
