Bird & Blooms































Here is my latest card which I am entering into two challenges, Waltzingmouse Sketch #20 and The Play Date Cafe #52 first year anniversary.    I stamped flowers from Waltzingmouse Stamps Sewing Box Hugs set using Adirondack orange and watermelon inks, and added some extra colour Hot Pink and Apricot Promarkers.  The bird is from the same set stamped in black onto a piece of yellow card (stamped twice to cut out and 3D).  I used various small stamps from the Walzingmouse Stamps Teeny Tree set to decorate the bird using the same pink and orange inks as before and fixed it with foam tape onto a Nestie Label 14 cut from a scrap of pink dotty patterned paper.  I finished the card off with pink and organge organza ribbon and a small tag which I think was free in a craft magazine.  The yellow and orange flowers are by Petaloo.

Love WM stamps and what you've done with them here! Makes me realy want to go out and get that set. Love the picture of your dog as well, I have a yellow lab but he's no way near as young as yours looks!
