WMS Sketch Challenge #100

Hey there and Happy Saturday! I'm just stopping in to play along this week with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog! It's their 100th Challenge, so I just had to play along! It is my first time participating with their challenges. This one is a big one, so it seemed like a good time to jump in! If you'd like to play along too, just click the link above! They have some great prizes, too! :)

This was the sketch:
WMSC100
And here is my take on the sketch:
I want to thank one of the mischief makers, and my sweet friend, Renee, for the very generous RAK I received yesterday! Almost everything on this card came from her, plus I have enough left to make many more cards! Thanks so much Renee! XOXO

Can you believe I even dusted off and used my Itop brad maker on this card? I've had that thing for at least over a year, and this is maybe the second time I've used it! I made the brad on the little doily flower that came from Renee.

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope to get more cards for this sketch posted soon!


Supplies:
Stamps: Paris Nouveau (WMS)
Paper: Venice by 7 Gypsies
Dies: Tiny Tags, Chevron borders, Mat Stack 4 and Layerz (PTI)
Other: Itop brad maker, doily flower, ribbon, twine, gem flourish

Renee is a great little Mischief Maker, isn't she? What a beautiful card and on your first WM challenge too! I love the color scheme and that great Eiffel Tower image. I love the little brad you custom-made and also the sparkly flourish. Just a totally shabby-chic card Jessica, you have to play along with the sketches all the the time now!

Oh so pretty, Jessica! I just love the patterned paper and the big bold flourish of pearls! So perfect with the Eiffel Tower image. Your brad maker is awesome! How cool that you can make your own to match any project...it looks like you purchased it at a store! Happy 100th sketch! So glad that you could play along this week :)!!

Great job on your first WM challenge. This card is a winner for sure. Isn't a package from Renee just the best thing? I love the sweet scene of Paris that you created.

A striking & stunning card Jessica - every element has been put together perfectly, quite the work of art! Every time we visit Florida my husband dedicates a day to driving me to all the Joann's & Micheal's within a 30 mile radius - it's my highlight of the trip LOL xxx

Hi Jessica - you've made a beautiful urban chic card. The graphic background with the pretty lace flower along with the gems and Eiffel Tower - just lovely! So much goodness - candy for my eyes!
