Waltzingmouse sketch challenge #43

Good evening, I thought I'd share a little card I made yesterday. Its a real quickie, as I only had 20 minutes max between all the many things I had to do. It was my last opportunity to take part in this weeks challenge, as I'm away from my craft room for a full week.
Anyway, in keeping with this weeks sketch over at waltzingmouse I made a simple sentiment with little embellishments.

I used a little Label 4 nestability for my sentiment, then used my teeny trees stamps to create some leaves. I stamped the small raindrop shape in pale green, then used the tree trunk stamp in a darker green to create the leaf veins. This picture isn't great, but it shows them before I cut them out.
I then stamped a Banana Frog sentiment onto the nestie, and gently sponged the edge with some distress inks tea dye. The top of the 5" white card was embossed with my new favourite folder, swiss dots. A nice brown ribbon, and some glue and I was done double quick!
Hope you like it!


  1. Simple and so classy! Love the swiss dots and the shimmery ribbon.

  2. Sweet CAS card :) The paper pieced leaves look darling! Thanks for playing along with the WMSC :)
