Happy Foreverness

Happy Saturday and today I'm happy to show you the card I made for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Have you been to the WMS Blog this week? The sneak peeks for the new release (whee - tomorrow!!) have been amazing! I can't wait to see the new sets fully revealed!! So sorry, back to the sketch! One of the things I love so much about these sketches is the amount of freedom we have to play with it! This sketch only "requires" a scallop and a tassel - how easy is that?
Who stayed up late/got up early to watch the royal wedding? I wanted to but ended up falling asleep before it started - 2am is too late for me anymore, lol! I'm pretty sure this card was inspired by all the festivities this week!

I stamped the long border stamp from Victorian Fripperie on a cream base in gold ink and then did the rest of my stamping on a vellum panel that I used as an overlay. I stamped the panel with the journaling image from the same set and stamped a small flourish into the scallops, adding pearls to the centers.
I finished the card with a tag and sentiment from the Fancy Phrases set and cut the tag from the Spellbinders foil. I love how elegant it turned out!
The last piece I made was a string of pearls, an iridescent bead, and an "I do" charm and tied it through a hole into the center of the card.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with using this fun sketch! Link up by next Thursday using at least one WM stamp and you will have a chance to be Top Mouse and/or win a stamp set of your choice just for playing along!

Supplies: Stamps - Victorian Fripperie, Fancy Phrases (WMS), Card Stock/Vellum (PTI), Ink (Encore), Pearls (Martha Stewart), Scallop Border Die (MFT), Cuttlebug, Twine (PTI), Pearls/Bead (my stash), Charm (Oriental Trading Co.), Tag Die/Foil (Spellbinders)
