WMSC125



Playing along with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.
This week's sketch is based on Jean Martin's fabulous card HERE.




I used patterned papers from Echo Park's Very Merry 6 x 6 paper pad which is part of my new mandate to stop hoarding paper.  I need lots and lots of luck with that.  Now if I can just part with the card I would be well on my way to recovery. 





Cardstock:  Kraft (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper:  Very Merry 6 x 6 pad (Echo Park)
Stamps: 2011 Ornaments (Waltzingmouse)
Ink:  Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Dies: Labels 18 (Spellbinders) Half & Half (Papertrey Ink)
other: baker's twine (The Twinery), jingle bell

This is just gorgeous. Hats off to you for using some patterned paper. You chose great patterns to go together. I like that you have an ornament hanging over (on) a tree.

I love how you put that rectangle layer over the banners...seems like a small touch, but it really adds to the card. Seriously! I love your take on the sketch Tracey! So glad you have started using WM...you have great ideas!

Oh wow GOOD LUCK! I'm trying to do the same and keep telling myself if I use this paper up I can buy more to fill that empty spot LOL! Very pretty Tracey, love this ornament.

Love the patterned paper (I can see why you would want to hoard it!) Great idea to use the half & half dies in place of the banners ~ a beautiful card!

Michelle said...

I too, love these pretty papers! Fabulous ornament, Tracey!

I seem to have the same issues as you with the patterned paper/card thing...but you seem to have it handled. Great take on the sketch.

And I'm resolving to use up half of my paper stash this coming year...
