All Those Little Images... Sketch!

Isn't this sketch grand?  Another fun one created by the fabulous Anya Schrier for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog.  I had so much fun that I got a bit carried away...I used images, big and small, from SIX different WMS sets to make my card!

Here's the rundown:
-a big heart and sentiment from Sweethearts
-wreath image from Faux Fun Circles
-a mini heart from Earth Angel
-leaves from Teeny Trees
-dotted circle and tiny dot from Nutcracker Sweet
-reverse polka dot border from Gingham & Co.

It just goes to show that Claire's sets really are so versatile and have the sweetest little treasures tucked between those bigger images on that acetate sheet!

I shout out to Edna...I added a bit of a "topper" to the sketch! (Eek, I couldn't help myself!)  I cut the wreath out with a Standard Circle Nestie and layered it over a bigger Petite Scalloped Nestie.  I covered the polka dotted heart from Sweethearts with Martha Stewart's clear coarse glitter.  You can see a bit of fabric underneath cut with a scallop border die.  The sentiment is stamped on a Tiny Tags die cut from Papertrey Ink.

This is going to be a week of brilliant background stamping I'll bet!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, February 3.  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 set of choice!
