All in one card!






Phew! This card took some planning - I don't have a lot of time for crafting right now so I wanted to combine a few of my favorite challenges! So for this card I've used the sketch from Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge. I used stamps from Teeny trees both for the background and for the sentiment. For tha label I used Vintage Lables 4. The colors, light yellow, light blue and kraft are from CR84FN29. I used scallops for Let's ink it Up (I was so sad to learn that Suzan is not feeling well and that this will be her last challenge - wish her a speedy recovery and I'll miss Let's Ink it Up - lots of great inspiration there) and I used 2 patterned papers, 4 buttons and 6 layers for The Shabby Tearoom and at Simon Says Stamp and show - it's "use your favorite stamp" and right now it is the bg stamp from the Papillon set from Tim Holtz - just soo useful for making your own vintagey paper - love it!!!
Another thing I love is the new TS punch I got from Cecilia at Cili in Papers - my rose is made from that petal pair punch!
Have a great day!
