Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge

Good morning Friends!!!

I couldn't wait to try out the inaugural Sketch Challenge at Waltzing Mouse Stamps!! I know that it will only be a few more days until my stamps come all the way from Ireland. Yes, Waltzing Mouse Stamps are from Ireland and they are LOVELY!!!!

I used a "inverted" technique featured on Claire's (designer & owner of Waltzing Mouse Stamps) Blog.

I played along with the sketch challenge but I used Close To My Heart stamps! I just received this little cutie set from my friend and neighbor Renette.

Please take some time to check out the challenge and hopefully you can find some time to play along!!!

Here is what I used to make the card:

Card Dimensions: 5.5 x 4.25
Cardstock: Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Joann's
Stamps: A Flitter (CTMH)
Ink: Gold Metallic (Encore), Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up)
Ribbon: Chocolate Chip Satic 5/8 in. (Stampin' Up)
Dies: Rectangles (Spellbinders)
Brad : Sera Sera Collection (K&Co.)
Extra's: Bright Gold Memory Mist (StewartSuperior)

Fun card, and the picture doesn't show the beautiful gold sheen from the Memory Mist.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please let me know how you like my card, and hopefully you will play along with sketch challenge!
