Good Morning...

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 

Good Morning...I have been so excited about getting my order from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I have only been using their stamps for a short while and since following them, this is the first release they have had and I was so jazzed to be able to order.  This card is made from the French Country and Chicken wire sets, they are both just too adorable and I just love all of the french sayings on the French Country set, but it was the rooster that sold me on this one, not sure why but it did. Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. I love this card. I also wanted the rooster from this set, and didn't look that closely at the set before buying it. I was so excited to see that there is a mini, too. That rooster looks so proud in front of the chicken wire. What a great way to say good morning.

  2. Oh, I really drooled over this set during their last release...good for you for getting it! I love that chicken wire and chicken! I love what you did with it and did a great job with the sketch! I love the colors and the distressing on the edges is perfect!

  3. Doh! I so wish I purchased the chiken wire set! It is a good'un as is this card. Love the red especially. So rich and jewel toned. So pleased you joined the WMS party as I am looking forward to seeing what you create with it.

  4. Kim - you are rockin the chicken wire. I love the "country" red with the rooster. Thanks for the inspiration and great job showing off the potential of this set!

  5. Oh YAY, Kim! I am so glad you got to order some new sets, and you chose some of my very favorites! The rooster gets ME every time, toooo! Love how you made your card in the simple red and cream color scheme. The little sentiment frame and buttons are perfect with him!

  6. Oh I love this one. I bought the chicken wire , but did not get the other set. After seeing your card, I could kick myself. Beautiful and I love it in the deep red.

  7. I love that chicken wire background! SO cute!

  8. I really like that rooster image!! And it looks perfect in red with the chicken wire background :) Great take on the sketch!

  9. Gorgeous!! :)
    LOVE this in red...
    and that background is divine!!
    The "smudging" gives it that "rustic" feel and is just the perfect touch!
    So glad you were able to place "your" first order...
    though I know you've dipped your toes in the water...
    but isn't it so exciting when you get "Royal Mail"?!!
    Now I'll have to see what I can do about some more enabling ;)

  10. This is an eye-catcher. Love that combo of chicken wire and rooster (I should have gotten him too. There's something about a rooster...) And I can't believe you only used two colors. There is so much depth. So interesting.

  11. such a sweet card, thanks for playing along with us at WM!

    enjoy *~*

  12. I love the colors you used and the rooster is perfect atop that chicken wire background!

  13. Cute little card!! I love the rooster + chicken wire combo + die-cut. CAS and sweet!
