Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #12

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for Club Anya & Friends September release preview!

It's time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! First is this week's sketch:

Here is my card:

I used the beautiful digital freebie Shamrock for the main image. This is a very pretty stamp and it's free! I had a lot of fun coloring it.

I paired it with BasicGrey's elegant cappella collection. All the paper edges are inked with tea dye. The sentiment is from the Fancy Phrases set.

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! =)
