Thinking of you card for Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz

Hello everyone,



It Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz today and the theme is tea or coffee. As I don't have any WMS tea or coffee stamps, I used a stamp that came free on a magazine a couple of years ago and layered it up on a cream card base. I used textured brown card for the layers and Nestabilities Labels 1 and 14 dies.

Its a little difficult to see here but I stamped the chevron stamp from Off Beat Backgrounds on the base card in Versamark ink to add a little texture. The frame stamp and sentiments were from Frame It and the fancy frame stamp at the top was from Holiday Labels. I finished it off by cutting holes in the frame to add a little ribbon and stitched on a couple of buttons with some embroidery floss. I also used this weeks sketch for the design.

I can't wait to see what goodies everyone else came up with - so enjoy the waltz and thanks for looking in.

Hugs
