It’s time for another fun Waltzingmouse Sketch! For my sample I started by cutting two strips of Neenah Classic White cardstock with one of the Jumbo Scalloped Borderabilities die.



I sponged one of the strips with Bundled Sage Distress Ink, the other with Spiced Marmelade Distress Ink. Next I stamped a border strip from Text-It over each border with the same inks.

I picked the colors from this weeks Tuesday Trigger challenge. I love the soft colors and with the skirt being striped, I thought it fit this sketch perfectly.

The bottom corners of a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Springtime Echo Park Paper were rounded and stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock. The bottom corners of the Kraft piece were rounded as well.

The scallop layers were adhered on top of each other on the upper part of the layers andΒ  May Arts Taupe Silk Ribbon was tied around it.The bow was topped with a Coral button.

Everything was adhered to the card base, a 4 3/16″ x 10 3/4″ piece of Classic White cardstock folded in half. A sentiment from Fancy Phrases in Frayed Burlap Distress ink to finish off the card.

I hope you have time to play with the sketch and the Tuesday Trigger challenge. Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles
