Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #10

Hello, my friends! Thanks for joining me for a card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:
Here is my card:

I again used the beautiful rose from the Roses In Bloom set. The elegant ornate circle and the sentiment are from the Victorian Fripperie set. The stamp is compatible with Nesties, so it fits perfectly with my die cut. I stamped the ornate circle with tattered rose and the sentiment with vintage photo. The edge of the circle was inked with tea dye and vintage photo. You can find more Nestie friendly stamp sets by Waltzingmouse Stamps here.

The background is stamped using two stamps from the Victorian Fripperie set. I inked them with tattered rose and stamped first on a piece of scrap paper before I stamped them on the card base for the subtle/distressed look. I also dyed the seam binding with tattered rose to match the color.

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Hope you can join us this week!

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! =)

Hi Alice <3
Wonderful cards (as allways) since my last visit to your blog. I haven´t been in the mood for card making since I came back from holiday hope it will come back to me ;0) It has been hard starting job after 4 weeks break and when I come home I just enjoy the sun and visit my friends. So for now I just enjoy my blogfriends creations!
Big hug Sanne

PS What a cute picture of you and Kelly - thanks for sharing (I think you look fab!)
