WMS Sketch Challenge #36 & H2H Color Challenge

So this time I'm again combining a sketch from one challenge with another challenge...H2H this week was to use the colors Gypsy, Creme Brulee & Black (Close To My Heart colors). I don't have Gypsy so I used Hydrangea, which is similar.

I have another rental set from Raisin Boat that I had yet to use, so I pulled it out and was the first one to ink it up! It is called Strokes of Wisdom, and it is such a cool set! I have never had a set before with stamps that simulate a crayon is a beautiful effect. I may just have to buy this set! ;)

So here is the Waltzingmouse sketch for this week:

I turned it on its side and came up with this:

I needed a baby card for a friend who recently had her 3rd little one, so I just added a baby sentiment inside which coordinated with the outside sentiment, "Celebrate the little things".

In the 25 minutes that I had left in my crafting time today, I wanted to pull together another quick card, so I used the same stamp set again and made this multi-purpose card (though it will probably be a birthday card):

I had such fun today! :)
