Hello!  I'm back to try another Waltzingmouse Challenge again today.  I used one of my favorite sets that coordinates beautifully with Spellbinders... Vintage Labels 10.

For the largest of the label 10 dies, I used white ink on craft paper and then the next two layers both use SU Mauve Mist.  Love the soft vintage designs of these stamps!!  Of the sentiment sets that I have from WMS, I didn't have anything that would fit inside of the smallest dies, so I went with one I had from Verve.

Because I used Pebbles "new arrival" paper with birds, I thought I would just complete the card with a bird theme and so added the Poppystamps dies (vintage bird cage & nestled bird).

I stuck to the sketch as much as possible - I'm terrible for never getting them exact.  But I'm happy with the turn out.  Here's the inside with the little birdcage:


Waltzingmouse Stamps - Vintage Labels 10
Verve - Smallest Things
Just Rite - Classic Lace Edges Two

Bella's Bestest paper, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Basic Grey "basics", Pebbles "new arrival" & "country picnic"

SB - classic edges 2, labels 10, floral flourishes
MFT - rolled rose, squiggle border
Memory Box - meridian border
Poppystamps - vintage bird cage & nestled bird

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & SU Mauve Mist, Colorbox frost white

adhesive pearls, sewing, pink ric rack

Well that's it for me.  Back tomorrow for Bellariffic Friday!!  If you'd like to enter, be sure to e-mail your card to Emily tonight.  See you then!!

That is such a lovely card. I like the birdie theme - goes with the sentiment perfectly.

Enjoy your day!

This is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. Love the bird motif, and how you carried the theme from your papers to the embellishments. Thank you so much for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge.
