TSTR # 73 & WMS # 59

It's been a hectic weekend and I have just managed to squeeze in a card for a couple of challenges.

I want to enter this for The Shabby Tea Room's challenge #73, Mix & Match (use at least three patterned papers) and also Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #59.

For WMS, I struggled to find three different papers to work with the sketch so instead opted for stitching to create the diagonals (hope that counts!).

(Edited: It took me ages to position the roses, ribbon and cameo that I forgot to use my stamp in the centre - I knew it looked like it was missing something! I opted for no sentiment on this card and instead used a decorative stamp to complete it)

Here is my card:

LinkI had been trying to find some Webster Page cameos but they seem to have been sold out for ages so, having been inspired by Clare Buswell's fimo makes, decided to make my own and bought this beautiful mould from etsy.

I absolutely love how it turned out. I just added some grey paint once the fimo had cooled down to add definition to the image.

Supplies used:
Cardstock - Echo Park, Fancy Pants
Ribbons - Oatmeal Seam Binding and 22m ivory crochet lace from the ribbon reel
Other - White Tea Rose from the ribbon reel, small cream roses from stash
, diamanté style pins from here

Beautiful, Keilly! I love the soft neutrals and the gorgeous patterned paper. That little cluster of embellishments around the cameo is amazing!

This is stunning Keilly, your cameo is gorgeous!! Love how you used stitching for the panels, a great idea!

Beautiful Keilly and so creative to make the cameo yourself, it's fabulous.
Am I the only one who has downloaded my photo's from last week, can't find anyone else's?

Fiona - I haven't got a link or invite to the group yet. Perhaps you can invite me, I should be under 'Keilly Mulvihill'. Thanks x

This is a beautiful card, and I just love how you made your own Cameo. I really need to check into how to do that. It turned out wonderfully. Thanks for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge.
