Hi y'all! Did you have a fabulous weekend? I got several hours of uninterrupted "just for the fun of it" stamping time and I feel refreshed and energized! Since it's another Monday, I'm using this week's Mojo Monday sketch. Check out the Mojo Monday blog for sketch 157 and a little inspiration from the DT.
Waltzingmouse Stamps arrived in record time, and I couldn't wait to get them inky! Today's card uses the Musical Backgrounds set and a few stamps from the Teeny Trees set. I started by stamping three sizes of the round circle thingies from Teeny Trees in Rose Red and Blushing Bride then punching out with circle punches (I'm thinking they were 1.25", 7/8" and 1/2"). Next I stamped the long musical background in blushing bride on blushing bride and made a little accordion flower, then layered all the pieced together on dimensionals and added a little flower pearl center.
The main background for the card has one of the musical background stamps lightly stamped in blushing bride repeatedly. For the rectangle, I used some Newsprint dp, then softened it up by rubbing the blushing bride ink pad directly on the paper. Next I cut a vellum rectangle, embossed the Birthday Wishes sentiment from Teeny Trees, then rubbed a little more blushing bride on for good measure.
My border strip is made with the EK success notebook edge and I added some shabby wrinkled ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique. I just noticed that I glued my border strip on the wrong direction, but I guess it doesn't really matter! :) I finished off with a bunch of distressed edges and some black flower pearls from Making Memories.
Okay, that wraps things up for today! Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of blogland! I hope you have a great start to your week!
