Waltzingmouse sketch challenge ....

....  the sketch for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC69 - is really fun.



My first thought was - a witch's hat!!!  And off I went to make a witch's hat.  But I thought about it a little more and ended up with something entirely different.  I remembered the lovely tall hats and veils worn by women in Medieval times  and decided to do a birthday princess version of that!



I started off by stamping the ornate vintage banner and cutting it out with the matching nestie.  I die cut some vellum and a snowflake to go into the circle on the banner and added some gems.  Next I found some pink shimmery fabric from my stash and made a ribbon to go along the base of the hat and added some to the apex as the veil.  I covered the base of the card with dark lilac card and added a castle and princess carriage that I'd cut out of a matching sheet of paper.  I attached the hat and veil to the card, added some roses and a simple birthday greeting.  A card fit for a princess!


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Vintage Banners, Eat Cake
Inks: Brilliance - Twilight; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders:  Nested Pennants (S5-028), Classic Inverted Scallped Circles Sm (S4-1950 #2, 2010 Snowflake Pendant (S4-286)
Acessories:  Paper - Best Creation Inc - Once Upon A Dream; Fabric, rose, card and gems from stash

When I showed this card to Kathryn - she said that it was lovely and would be perfect for a six year old!!  Don't you hate it when they grow up so fast!!  So I guess I'll make a box for this one - far too much depth to go in an envelope - and keep it for one of Kathryn's younger friends! 

That's all for now - I'm off to sort out the kitchen and utility rooms and get everything back in order.  See you later.

This is so sweet, Deborah! I just love your idea. The shimmering floaty fabric piece is so lovely. You chose the perfect banner to make this, and the roses and heart gem are too sweet! Some little girl will be smiling from ear to ear after she gets this card fit for a princess!

And it's heartbreaking that they grow too fast...
