Birthday Sketch!

Today Waltzingmouse Stamps is TWO years old!  It's time to celebrate Claire Brennan and her awesome little company that could!

This week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog is another fab sketch by Edna Morrisedie, and lots of birthday inspiration from the Mischief Makers and WMS Design Team...


Here is my card:


Based on Edna's lovely sketch here:


The background is the sweater pattern from Faux Fun.  Then I die cut 12 of the smallest heart from the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts Nestabilities set, embossed them, and then stamped them with patterns from Gingham & Company.  The BIG Birthday Hugs sentiment is from Say it Loud, stamped on vellum and wrapped around the heart panel.  Lot of Antique Linen Distress ink, my birthday shout out to Claire (who has quite the fondness for it)!

Now it's your turn to play.  Link your creation with this sketch HERE in the specified time frame, and be sure to use at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project.  You could be the randomly-selected player that receives a free WMS stamp set of choice!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday, Dear Sweet Waltzingmouse.....Happy Birthday to You (with HUGS)!

I love everything about this card, Kelly! The little polka dot and gingham hearts look perfect on the sweater background. And the vellum sentiment is the cherry on top!

Hi Kelly

I love your cards with all those little hearts on it, the dots and gingjam just look great together. I also very much like your colors as well as the sentiment stamped on vellum, that gives a very elegant touch.

Best regards and thanks for your lovely comment
