Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #34 AND Papertrey's Make it Monday for this week!

Once again, I'm killing two challenges with one card...Papertrey's Make it Monday challenge was to use a vellum sentiment strip, so I combined that with Waltzingmouse's sketch and voilĂ  my combo card!

I cut the window with Papertrey's Mat Stack 1 die...I LOVE their dies...they cut so beautifully through more than one piece of cardstock/patterned paper and leave a really nice, clean & professional looking edge to your cut piece.

I recently got Making Memories' new Valentine line, Je t'Adore, so I just had to use the music note paper that's on the back of the Floral Ledger. This collection had the MOST ADORABLE embellishment box so I used one of the cute little flower embellishments from that.

The frame inside the card that shows through the window is from Mat Stack 2 Collection. The little present was cut with dies that coordinate with Make a Wish, along with the little cake tray stamp which is also from Make a Wish.

I also used PT's eyelet lace border die to cut the borders from a piece of text paper from Making Memories' last year's Valentine line, Love Shack.

I just received (yesterday) Big Birthday Wishes, a new set (released last month) from Papertrey which I just love. Used that for the sentiment stamped on the vellum. They have a coordinating set of number dies that I used to cut the "44" out and place it behind the embossed vellum. I put it there so it wouldn't be so blatant to the recipient as I broadcast her age!! Sssshhhh...ha, just kidding.

So there you have it, a sketch & a vellum strip sentiment, all in one little card (it's a 5x7 size by the way) I posted a few pics so the details can all be clearly seen.
