WMSC105 and CR84FN58

 Hi folks!  This is most likely my last card before leaving town again this weekend, so I tried to make it a good one.  I'll leave that judgement to posterity!  Anyway, I did it for the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge WMSC105 as well as the CR84FN58 (red, yellow, neutral) color challenge.  I always love combinations of red and yellow--they are so cheerful!  Here is the card:



I used Waltzingmouse sets French Country, Chicken Wire, and Off Beat Backgrounds.  The Chicken Wire was stamped with Versamark on glossy white cardstock then colored all over with Wild Honey distress ink (the Versamark acts as a resist).  Trimmed the piece and mounted on SU Real Red cardstock, then added a small checked panel stamped in Barn Door distress ink.  The rooster was also stamped in Barn Door.  The red panel was die cut (Spellbinders Labels 18) from Real Red and embellished with yellow dots using a Sakura Souffle opaque pen.  The button was generously supplied by the Mousetress herself, Claire Brennan (thanks again!).  The sentiment came from a little Inky Antics set called Simple Sentiments.  Inside the card it says "because you can never have too many!"  I really liked that.  There is another one that goes with it that says "you can return it if you like."  Isn't that cute?  A few bits of red/white baker's twine finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a nice day!

  7. This is just fabulous Cydie! A great sketch, and those colours with the layered elements just jump off the card, so bright and vivid. I,love the mix of patterns and layers o elements, so much interest here!
    Well, I wish I could send you guys bucket loads (literally, so many areas are flooded, thankfully not where I live) we have seen the fires you have had to endure, and it's shocking how many people have died in these extreme heats. Just stay safe and cool, and hopefully it will break soon.
    Thanks for joining us at Cr84Fn this week!
