Waltzingmouse Stamp Blog Hop!

This month's theme at Waltzingmouse Stamps is Shabby Chic or Vintage!  I chose to go the vintage route...


Used lots of Tim Holtz Distress inks, the WMS stamp sets Pic-Nic Patterns and Peace and Plenty.  Also used PTI cardstock and buttons, the Linen Background stamp (retired SU), and the Open Plaid and Weave Backgrounders (retired CHF).  Had to dust off some of the old to go with my new WMS for this occasion!  The buttons are strung up on a piece of twine...one of my fave ways to use up those beloved buttons.

Thanks so much for waltzing by today!
