March's Waltzingmouse Blog Party!!

I can hardly believe it's the 17th of March already. And this is a special day. Not only for Waltzingmouse Stamps, but for my husband who is celebrating his birthday today. :)



The theme for this month's Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party, of course, is St. Patrick's Day...green, shamrocks, etc. So I made a green based card, including a bitty shamrock and birthday sentiment from the Celtic Heritage set, created a background using an image from the new set Heirloom Patterns, and added a varigated butterfly from the new set Nordic Spring using Tea Leaves VersaMagic ink, and Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance ink. The bg was stamped with Latte (a muse), and the shamrock was stamped onto dp.


I diecut the center using Labels 18 and a Classic Oval die (Spellbinders), and popped it up with dimensional tape. If you click on the photos, you can see the sparkle on the Butterfly and shamrock better.



That's it for today. Thanks so much for visiting!
I hope you have a lovely St. Patrick's Day, and enjoy your weekend!!
Happy Stamping!
