Waltzingmouse # 54


How are you?
It's Friday and that means that the weekend is just around the corner....such a wonderful thought...:)
It also means that there are only a few hours left to submit a card for this weeks'challenge at the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge

This week it's about this sketch :


I decided to make a card without a piece of patterned paper or a stamped background.

My interpretation of the sketch;
The two lines are the edges of a border. I immediately thought of the Victorian Frippey border.
That set is my absolute favorite and the border...I will never ever get tired of that beauty. I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder The circles became handmade flowers. I cut circles out of satin lining and melted the edges above a candle. Glued them together and added a pearl. The leafs are cut out of soft yellow felt:

The sentiment is from another favorite set; Rescue Remedies Additions.
It's also stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder:

I rubbed the edges of my card with a white ink pad. That's all; I think that these three items  - flowers, border and sentiment -  are enough and didn't add anything else.
Here is my card:

I hope you like it.
Off to visit some/your blogs :).
Last night I planned to catch up but I didn't...sorry. It's my goal for today!
Till soon!
