It’s time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. 12 little circles on a card front. It took me a while to figure out what to use. I kept on hoping my new stamps would arrive, but by Friday I had to give up and use one of the sets that I already had.  I looked through my Waltzingmouse stamps and picked the Fleur De Lis image from Vintage Label 2 set.

I love to combine the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge with the current Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. Cath always finds the best inspiration images for us! I picked the colors from the image. The Fleur De Lis image isn’t quite the diamond shapes of the plate, but I thought it would work well. I like how the black Fleur is so solid in front of the sponged and stamped blue background.


I cut and embossed 12 circles with one of the Classic Circle Nestabilities dies out of Neenah Solar White cardstock. First I stamped the Fleur in Jet Black Archival Ink.  The die was placed back over the cardstock circle and one of the textured frames was stamped over the circles with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. The edges of the circle were sponged with the same ink.

A 2 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Stella & Rose Hazel MME patterned Paper was adhered over a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. The two bottom corner were rounded before the layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of black cardstock.

The circles were adhered to the layers with dimensionals. May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 7/16″ x 11 1/4″ piece of Textured Whisper White cardstock (Stampin’ Up!) folded in half.

The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases. It was stamped on white cardstock with Jet Black Archival ink that had been cut and embossed with a retired Spellbinders die (at least I think it’s retired, I can’t find it anywhere to link to). It was adhered under the bow.

A big fleur was cut and embossed with a die from Spellbinders Antiquities die. It was adhered above the bow. Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones in the center in each stamped Fleur as well as in the cardstock one finish off the card.

I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. If you have a lot of time to stamp, head on over to Splitcoaststampers. There is a Virtual Stamp Night going on this weekend. Challenges were posted Friday night and will continue today at 1 EST.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles
