WMSC #73 - My Dear

Image(21)
Well it appears I am running behind on most things this week - I don't know why - I guess that's just how it goes sometimes.  I missed out on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge last week and for sure didn't want to miss out this week.  Sometimes the sketch immediately talks to me, sometimes I have to kick it around in my head a while.  This one took me a while.  I knew immediately that I would be putting a cameo in the circle but the rest of the design eluded me for a while.  
To get the scrunched ribbon look I wrapped seam binding around the card three times and then tied it together with string in the middle under the cameo.  To make the rosette/yo-yo I weaved the same seam binding into the lace ribbon and then pulled it to the right size - I wanted the melon seam binding to frame the cameo.  You know I had to get my touch of bling in there so I added a few glass beads onto the tag strings.  I used Versamagic chalk ink to get full coverage on these solid stamps.  I like how the vintage cameo and tag look with the bright colors.  

I hope you're playing along!  I know it's late, but if you'd like to get the details or see what everyone else came up with  click here  http://waltzingmousesketchchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/11/challenge-73november-12-2011.html . 

Thanks!

Jeanne

Oh! The cameo is so gorgeous and that patterned paper and the colors in it are so pretty, a switch up from holiday cards. I love that little rosette, wish I could do that and I love the little touch of bling with the beads. Just an overall striking card. I love it Jeanne.

Oh BEAUTIFUL, Jeanne! I am so excited because I have those papers, hee! They are perfect with the cameo set. Your seam binding wrap is gorgeous, and I just love how it's threaded through the lace medallion. Those beads are an awesome touch...something else that I don't have in my stash but that you are enabling me to buy soon :O!
