Sending Oodles Of Love and Hugs On Your 100th!




No, no, not birthday.  I don't actually know of any centenarians come to think of it?   It's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge's "100th sketch challenge" challenge.  Just as well I don't have to say that three times fast.

This card is another of my rather unorthodox takes on their sketches.  I had originally intended to play the sketch straight, but it looked rather snoozey my hands.  So, I decided to cut out a tag from the columnar layer and stamp it with Waltzingmouse Stamps' Faux Fun set.  I adore the natty knitted pattern this background stamp makes.  I then embossed the tag with Provocraft/Cuttlebug embossing folder Gauchi Script. Love that folder.  The cool sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps' newly released Compact Sentiments.  It also is a good'un.  The other elements placed on the card are more literal takes on the sketch, except for that I just had to adhere it akimbo.  What can I say?  I just felt it in my waters.

So here's my celebratory card, sentiment and all, marking this auspicious occasion at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  Many, many happy returns, WMSC.  Cheers!

Always love your antiqued feel with all that shabby inking. The embossed tag is a great piece too. I first thought too - holy hat she knows someone who is 100 - wow! LOL
