Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz - August 2010


This month's waltz theme was Vintage or Shabby Chic. I tried to go for the latter. What do you think?


The flower is made by punching scallops from a sheet of apricot coloured vellum. A homemade brad fills the center.


The stamped label is from the Rescue Remedies set from Waltzingmouse Stamps, and the lacy border underneath is from the Faux Fun set. For details on the Waltz, please visit: The Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps blog waltz post.

The pleated ribbon makes it qualify for Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge #153. You can check out  that challenge on Sharon's No Time To Stamp Blog.
