Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #23

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


I pretty much followed the sketch for this one. =)


Isn't this stamp just gorgeous? I am in love! It's from the beautiful Festive Foliage set. I inked the stamp with vintage photo and forest moss and spritzed it with water before stamping on the watercolor paper.


I added some yummy antique linen distress stickles to this image. I used a strip of vellum for the corner accent so that it' won't take too much attention off the main image. The sentiment is from the Compliments of the Season set.


Here is the inside of the card. Don't forget to check out the fabulous November release at Waltzingmouse Stamps!

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! =)
