Happy 1st Birthday Waltzingmouse!

Waltzingmouse Stamps is one year old! Happy Birthday! Claire is releasing eight new stamp sets May 1, and if you order on May 1-2 you get free international shipping with an order over 50GBP (approx. $77). That is really something to celebrate! Claire has a sketch challenge contest, with the  prize being all 8 sets in the new release. Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:


The card base and the panel embossed with Textile Pattern (Cuttlebug) are Creamy Caramel (Stampin' Up!). The center panel is Natural Confetti cardstock (SU), cut out with a Lattice Pendant die (Spellbinders) and sponged with Vintage Photo (Distress Ink - Ranger). The embossed panel and punched flower centers were also sponged with Vintage Photo. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse's Earth Angel set, one of my faves!


The flowers are silk, from a big autumn assortment (Imaginisce) and are designed to be used to make flowered brads with the iTop tool. I used a small punched flower and antiqued gold mini-brad as a center instead.


Of course you can't forget the inside! I added a couple more of the small punched and sponged flowers, coloring in the centers to coordinate with the flowers on the outside. I love this sentiment by Hero Arts! It had a turtle on the same clear stamp but I trimmed it so the words and turtle were two separate stamps.

This card is also for my sister's mother-in-law, Sparky! Happy birthday Sparky!

I hope you have lots of birthdays too - they really are good for you! Please leave a comment, I treasure them all. It really makes my day when I hear from you!
