Birthday Wishes Waltzingmouse Style!

If you're looking for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz, then you've come to the right place! Welcome! We are celebrating the 1st Birthday of Waltzingmouse Stamps this month, so our theme is BIRTHDAY.

My card features images from the Asian Gardens stamp set, which I LOVE. There are so many wonderful images in this set... so many possibilities... and lots of different greetings.

That gorgeous DP is by Websters Pages. I sponged the edges with Walnut distress ink by Tim Holtz for Ranger, and used the same ink to stamp the images and greeting.

I hope you'll join us for our blog waltz today. You can find the links to all the participants in The Play Room in the Waltingmouse House forum. There's a game with a chance to win a stamp set of choice... you must count all the little teacup watermarks in the posts by members of the Design Team and Claire (i.e., the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog) and enter the number in the appropriate thread in The Play Room. A winner will be randomly drawn from all the correct answers. I am one of the design team members, so be sure to look closely at the photo of my card. How many teacups do you see??? The game ends at 11:59 pm EASTERN on Tuesday, May 18th, so hurry!

Have a beautiful day! Oh, and be sure to scroll down to see my earlier post for The Pink Elephant.

P.S. The sketch Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #73.
