Walzingmouse Stamps 100th Sketch Challenge

I honestly can't remember if I've ever tried a sketch challenge before, but I was eager to play along with this one for Walzingmouse Stamps.  The problem I had was I didn't own any WM stamps... so I downloaded a freebie and went from there.    (I've quickly rectified the fact that I didn't own any by the way... lol... my little package from Ireland is on the way).

Here's the sketch:



And here's my card based on the sketch:
 
 
I used my 2 favorite papers - Jilly Bean & MME Miss Caroline.  And as usual, I used a mixture of dies: Spellbinders Labels 20, Memory Box Madera Corner, Lil' Inker Designs bow die and MFT scallop ribbon border die.  Sentiment is from Just Rite, impage coloured with copics.  And of course the image is from Walzingmount Stamps - and it's a freebie!!  (The beautiful turquoise ribbon came on a birthday present I received!!)
 
Thanks for stopping by!!  Until next time...
Carla.

Well, little Birthday Girl, methinks you nailed that WMS sketch! Oh yes you did. I love that you put that little bit of Aqua Mist twill ribbon to good use. It works perfectly on your card. Oh, and that paper bow - well, you're killing me with its cuteness. Your card couldn't possibly be any prettier. I adore that sentiment and they way you dressed up the SB with the pearl trio. Happy Birthday little Missie!
