Today is the day! For the May 17, 2010 Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz, that is. Our theme is Birthdays, and WMS just celebrated its first birthday, so that's appropriate. Here's my square aperture card:
I was happy to use the Fancy Phrases stamp set that fits so nicely in the Spellbinders Fancy Tags dies. I created the plaid background using stamps from the Pic-Nic Patterns stamp set combined with a long line stamp I found on the Very Vintage Christmas stamp set. At first it didn't look like much but I just kept adding rows and turning the paper and next thing I knew, I was looking at plaid! The tea cup and pansies came from the Afternoon Tea Sentiments stamp set. I coloured them with Prismacolour pencils and then glaze pens.
Thanks for visiting. If you want to see more from other dance partners in the waltz, please visit Claire's blog for details.
