Waltzingmouse Blog Hop!!




I'd like to say welcome to all of the Waltzingmouse Blog Hoppers, lol, but I think I am 12 hours late getting my post on- darn! I finally got Euros figured out, now I just need to figure out the time and date differences, lol!! Well, enjoy the card anyway, lol!!

I am still stuck on Nerina's sketch and little butterflies, and this card follows the previous 2 in the post below- scroll down a post or two to see more Waltzingmouse cards!!

I used Papertrey's Sweet Blush and Spring Moss as my base colors. The stamp sets used are Say It With Style for the background and birthday sentiment, Blessed By You for the leaves, and Very Vintage Labels 4 for the label, of course!! The scroll background was stamped in Hibiscus Burst from Papertrey; I used a sponge to go around the base card edges and the layer edges. Can't have a Spring card without flowers, right? These are from Prima!



Isn't it pretty? You can't see it here, but there are two layers of ribbon, Spring Moss and Sweet Blush, under the center medallion. The bow is tied with both as well! The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart, I punched it from a leftover from the scroll layer. Just a touch of Stickles (clear) makes it sparkle. The body is formed from wee little black pearls.

Well, 'mouser's, I do believe you have just completed your first ever Waltzingmouse Blog Hop! Wasn't everything beautiful?? If you got here another way, be sure and go to the start of the hop here ; but not before you make yourself a pot of tea or coffee, and get a pen and paper to write down all of the ideas you will get along the way!

I had time issues too. I guess GMT doesn't stand for Greater Mountain Time. You made it ans that's what counts! Your card is near and dear to my heart. When I was growing up my carpet was spring green and my walls were pink. Needless to say, I love your card. Your are a talented woman and I have been a silent stalker of your blog for a looooong time!
