Hello friends! Today kicks off another week of sketches at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and for April, the sketch designer is none other than our very own MM, Karin Akesdotter! Check out this beauty -
I knew straight away that I wanted to use my new Konnichiwa papers (I LOVE them - so springy!!) and thought the lanterns from Asian Gardens/Additions would be perfect! I used two sheets of coordinating paper and added chunky glitter around the smaller panel. I stamped/embossed the lanterns with silver powder, popped them up, and "strung" them with some burlap twine. I finished the card with a couple of brads and a congrats sentiment.

Link up by Friday for a chance to be crowned Top Mouse and remember, one random participant will win the stamp set of their choice!

Supplies: Stamps (WMS), DP/Brads (Basic Gray), Glitter (Martha Stewart), foam squares, Embossing Powder (SU!), Ink - Big and Bossy (Ranger), Basic Black (SU!), Cardstock - Pretty in Pink (SU!)
