Happy Birthday Claire

It's a special day!  My friend, Claire (owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps), is celebrating her birthday today!  To show her just a wee bit of love, some of her friends are throwing her a birthday blog waltz!  Claire is just the sweetest, classiest gal (and a very talented designer) and I'm so glad to call her friend.  Happy Birthday Claire!  I hope your special day and the year to come are truly blessed!

If you just happened by my blog then you won't want to miss any of this celebration!  Head on over to the Waltzingmouse Blog to get started!  For those of you arriving from Alice's blog...you are on the right track!

For my card for Claire, I picked some stylish new Lush papers by KaiserCraft that totally reminded me of Claire's style and pulled out a few of my Waltzingmouse favorites.  I started by embossing the frame from Holiday Labels No. 14 in basic gray ink, then adding the sentiment from Frame-It and a little accent below it from the Holiday Labels set.  For the background, I added a little text-style background from Text-It then embellished with a little prima flower, Sabrina trim, rhinestones, and some skeleton leaves from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Okay, next up on the waltz is the talented Anya! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Enabler's List:
Stamps: Holiday Labels No. 14, Frame-It, Text-It (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Papers: Lush (KaiserCraft), Basic Gray, Ivory
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: Labels 14 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), pink rhinestones, Sabrina trim, skeleton leaves (Pizzazz Aplenty), prima flower, paper distresser
