Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #3

This is my first time trying out the new Waltzingmouse sketch challenges, but better late than never I guess. :-)


This was the sketch that was provided for this week's challenge:




And here is my take on it:



I started with a base of Ripe Avocado (PTI) and used patterned papers from Memory Box (Gossamer) and Basic Grey (Infuse). I used my Labels 4 Nestabilities die for the sentiment piece. It was stamped in Dark Chocolate (PTI) using a stamp from Waltzingmouse's Fancy Phrases set.
The ribbon is Dark Chocolate Swiss Dots (PTI) and the button is one that I found in a multi pack at Walmart. I distressed the edges a little and put it all together.


I'm hoping to be able to participate in more of these challenges. There is a blog dedicated to them and it can be found here: http://waltzingmousesketchchallenge.blogspot.com/
The more the merrier, so why don't you play along too?

Really pretty, great use of colour and patterns. The sentiment is so decorative, it's a great focal point.
