Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #129

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

Can you believe it, this is the final weekly sketch challenge with Waltzingmouse, I love this challenge and try to participate as often as possible.  I love the sketch ideas and need to get some of them pinned for future use, you know those times when you sit down to make or project and your mind goes blank...I love looking at the sketches I have pinned for inspiration.  I went through my WM stamps and wanted to use one that I have not played with in a while and My Island was it.  I love this stitched rectangles from Lil Inkers and have been using them every chance I get.  For the buttons, I remembered while making the card that Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea had sent me these amazing wooden buttons quite some time ago, I knew one day I would find the perfect card for them.  You still have a few hours left if you would like to make a card the the final WMS challenge.  Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek!

  1. Oh, this is perfect. I love the scale of that little stamp in the stitched rectangle, and you managed to use two of them on the same card. I see papers from one of my favorite PTI packs, and that gorgeous ribbon--which I have sitting in my ribbon holder, too! I feel a CASE coming on--such a fun take on this last WM sketch challenge.

  2. and Joyce have convinced me to use my stitched rectangles...soon! Love your card with the My Island set...and the buttons really are perfect for this card and so is that neat ribbon.

  3. Fabulous patterned paper and I so love that stamp set. The stitched mat is amazing. Hope they are back in stock soon. That ribbon is absolutely gorgeous.

  4. What a fun, fun card, Kim! Those buttons from Joyce are adorable and that ribbon is the coolest ever!!

  5. Love the colours you've chosen for this Kim - I'd never have thought of using that colour scheme with that works brilliantly. And the wooden buttons and ribbon give it a real rustic feel!

  6. very nice card with those buttons and ribbon.
    Love from Holland.

  7. Oooo what a beautiful card, Kim!! Reminds me of a little beach side cottage on a far off island with these colors and the woven ribbon! Those stitched rectangles are so cool and they are on my wishlist, too! I have loved seeing your amazing WMSC cards, and I can't wait to see what you make with your WMS at upcoming events in 2013!

  8. Great way to use the sketch, and the colour palette is just lovely, well done and thanks so much for playing along with the last Mischief Maker Sketch!!
