WMSC #121 - Merci

Hey Guess What?  It's time for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for this week.  It's become my Saturday morning ritual to check the winners from last week and to see the new sketch inspiration!    I don't know if you ever noticed but the sketches are inspired by Design Team members and sometimes the head mouse herself, Claire Brennon.  Well the next series of sketches for the coming weeks are inspired by the Mischief Makers.  And knock me over with a feather - the first one is inspired by .. YIKES!!!... ME!!    I know... crazy right? 

Well since I was the inspiration for this one I wanted to do something extra special!  I made a French inspired thank you card from me to YOU with lots of embellishments.  I started with some pretty paper from Pink Paislee and the rest fell into place on it's own.   In the center of the bow is a crystal gem from Swarovski Crystal Elements.  I like looking at all the pretty beads and such in the jewelry department of the craft store for pretty metal and glass embellishments.    Even though jewelry isn't my latest obsession some of these beauties find their way into my basket!

I hope you find some time to play this week - you can find loads of inspiration from the Mischief Makers and you might even win a new set of Waltzingmouse Stamps!

Have a great day!
Hugs!
Jeanne

I love how you post your pictures! I never really know what I'm looking at while I dig through the layers and layers of gorgeousness and then...the reveal where I go, "OHHHH WOW!!" It's so fun how you captivate the eye and all the senses with one close up shot, always the perfect bait to draw me in!
This card is stunning Jeanne and I love the roll of ribbon you used on that bow up top..LOL..kidding! But I DO love the multi loops SO much. :)
Hey, hugs to you and Happy Weekend my friend.
Sorry it took forever to get over, I'm drowning in my own pile of cardstock at the moment..hee hee.

This is a beautiful card and I love all the layers. I also wanted to thank you for your advise yesterday. I was able to order that spellbinder die Can't wait to play with it.

Look at you, sketch artist now! Love your sketch Jeanne, I think the Eifel Tower looks perfect along side that great zig zag border and you added your signature bow and beautiful flowers with some lace too! Very pretty, guess I have to play this week just to see if I can do your great sketch justice.

Oh my goodness, Jeanne, so much to look at on this card! I love that the little pink silhouette is tucked in by the Eiffel tower :) And then the great big doily is awesome, too!

Of course, you would do a killer job on your own sketch, right? Congrats on making a sketch, and of course totally nailing it. Your card is so beautiful, with so many pretty details. I hope to get a chance to play along and see if I can work something with your magic behind me.

Sorry I am late, catching up.
Why not you! This is stunning and gorgeous! You did a beautiful job with the sketch and your inspiration card, Jeanne. I am loving all the pink and die cuts you used . Congrats!
