Waltzingmouse Challenge Time!

2 posts in one day - this is becoming a habit!
Here is my submission for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for this week.

I think this might be the first time I've made a round card! And I don't have round nesties, so it was a bit of work for me, but I am happy with the results. I used my Coluzzle from Stampin' Up, and cut out the largest circle. Then I traced a CD, since it was slightly bigger, cut it out, and used my corner rounder to create the scalloped edges. Then I decided it's definitely worth considering buying some round and scalloped Nesties!

I ran my smaller (brown) circle through a cuttlebug folder to emboss it, since that always adds dimension. Then I cut out my background label using my Labels 1 nesties, and stamped the border in Baja Breeze with a border from the coordinating WMS set. I cut out a Labels 4 nestie, then stamped the border in Basic Brown with the coordinating WMS stamp set. I stamped a background flourish in Baja Breeze, from Vintage Labels no. 10, then stamped my sentiment from Very Vintage Christmas in Pacific Point. I accented the background label with some red rhinestones to tie in the red ribbon, which I added for some pop. I used vintage buttons to complete the sketch, and actually, I am really happy with how it all turned out - there was a moment there where I really wasn't sure I was going to like this one!
