Hello friends!  Today is Saturday and I'm thrilled to be one of the first to reveal the newest sketch at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!  Check out this beauty inspired by DT member, Mona -
I was rifling around in a drawer that has a bunch of ephemera in it and found this old library card catalog card.  I think it must be a card for one of the videos this particular library offered.  I'm going to wander down memory lane a bit now and say that I love public libraries!!  Now I haven't been since we moved to San Francisco but I've spent a good number of hours at the library since I was a wee kid and my mom took me to story time at our local branch.  I've always loved to borrow books, records, and even movies!  And, for some reason, all of the movies I've borrowed over the years have been those great musicals of the 50s and 60s!  Okay, now you know why this little card was such an inspiration...  :)

I used some patterned papers to back the card and stamped one of the sentiments from Compact Sentiments on the bottom.  I then stamped the small rose and leaves from Roses in Bloom onto some coordinating papers and pieced them together.  I used a small pink brad for the center of the rose and pieced the center again to pop it up a bit.  I finished the card with a wooden button.

Thanks so much for visiting today and I sure hope you have a chance to play along with us this week!

Supplies:  Stamps (WMS), DP/Button/Brad - Konnichiwa collection (Basic Gray), Ink - Basic Black (SU!), foam squares, Cardstock - Pretty in Pink (SU!)


  1. I really like the library card backing and pretty rose!

  2. I kind of miss those card catalogs and the library cards that you signed your name on. I always enjoyed seeing who read the book before me. Anyway, I love how you included this library ephemera on your card.

  3. Gorgeous paper piecing!

  4. Love the colors! Library paper is fun! Adore the flower/leaves! Wonderful!

  5. Gorgeous card - I love the library card piece! Great inspiration, Rx

  6. I love the background paper (library card) you chose for this and that layered flower is fabulous! I love the variety of WMS Compact Sentiments too, so many uses and thoughts to convey with them!

  7. Oeh, j'adore this card!! Stunning background colors and such a beauty of a flower! Pretty!!
    Hugs, Wendy
