Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

When I went to take the photo I dropped it and it messed the edge of the ..thank you.. a bit.

 Hi, I am sure everyone is so busy this time of year. I am almost 
done with the shopping and wrapping of the gifts for my almost 12,
grandchildren.  Soon I will start the baking and candy making. 
But I knew I would find time to use this gorgeous set Vintage Garden - Seed Packet.  Its funny... I thought I use everything but 
the carnation in this set… and here it's the first stamp I use from this beautiful stamp set.  I added a  bit of a longer stem , so it would fit the challenge. I made this one red and white because it will be a Christmas Thank You, I love the font.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

This weeks sketch is from Teresa Kline, Love it!

    Isn't it so frustrating when you finish a card and then spill or smudge something on it .

  15. The red and white combo looks so pretty, Marybeth! The detailed image and label stand alone so beautifully, but I love the strip of ribbon that extends past the edges.
