July Friends of Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz
Hello and welcome to my very small part in the HUGE monthly Waltzing Mouse Stamps Blog Waltz!! I am so excited to be a part of this again and can't wait to be inspired by such creative ladies!! The Waltz starts over at the Waltzing Mouse House Forum where you can pick up the threads should you wish to start at the beginning (definitely worth doing-you wouldn't want to miss out!!).
If I get time, I would really like to enter this into Kate & Aimes' current challenge over at the "A Passion for Papertrey" blog too.
Onto my card......The theme is the colours of summer... blue and green (any shades of your choosing). I hope the Kingfisher/teal blue colour I've used here are summery enough & still counts??!! I raided my mum's material stash as I knew I wanted to make a fabric flower, saw this silk & just fell in love!! This material is so beautiful in real life and I'm not sure that you will be able to see, but it is woven in such a way that it looks blue/green-depending which angle you're looking from. I used this fantastic post by the uber-talented Betsy Veldman to make the flower.
I used a few different stamps on this card but I am really pleased with how the scroll from Faux Fun Circles (Waltzing Mouse Stamps) fits so nicely around the flower!!
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed the card and have a great time Waltzing around everyone else's blogs.
