Multi Challenge Waltzingmouse Card

I received my Waltzingmouse stamps around my holidays.  Claire was awesome about holding an order for me until close to my arrival home date.  I've been home for almost 3 weeks, and I finally inked them up!  Yay, me!  I combined 3 splitcoast challenges here, and I don't think it turned out badly at all!

I used the colour combination always artichoke, cherry cobbler and pretty in pink, but I forgot to use the dessert option pf using pinking scissors  My layout is sketch challenge 294 and I decided to pull out my versamark ink when I saw today's Ways To Use It challenge.  I really appreciate the challenges right now, because I'm not coming up with much if I have to think it up on my own right now, but this should go away in about a week... about the same time night feeds are done.

I used Infuse by Basic Grey, an older pattern line that I need to use up, because the colours were terrific for the colour challenge.  I think I may have too much pattern going on but it works, I hope.  I stamped the long stamp from Victorian Frippery along the lower edge of the sentiment panel with Versamark ink and I heat embossed using Zing! chocolate brown powder.  It's been ages since I used Versamark ink, and since I love the stuff and the effects I can get with it, I don't know what I was waiting for!!! 

It's a pretty basic card since I can't dedicate too much time crafting for the next week.  Thanks for popping by - you just made my day!
