Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

My Waltzingmouse Stamps order arrived in the mail today, and I saw that as a sign that I should participate in their sketch challenge for the first time. The deadline is tonight, so I just made it in the nick of time. This would have been a very quick card if it hadn’t taken me a few tries before I had the background stamped the way I liked it. I am so used to breaking out my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig that it felt weird not to use it with these clear stamps.

I got lots of birthday cards to send out this month, so I selected a birthday sentiment that I received as a “thank you” gift with one of my Verve Stamps orders. It’s also one of the stamps in the Big Wish stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!
