Hello blog readers!! I’m so excited to finally dive into 12×12 layouts – after exclusively making cards, mini albums and altered projects for the past year.
I’m participating in two fun events with this BIRTHDAY themed layout. I used DCWV “Playtime” paper stack with its glittered, fun, rustic/outdoor images. I love the kraft color background on all these adorable papers and the glitter elements too! All stamping was done with Waltzingmouse Stamp sets in the following fabulous and versatile collections:
“Afternoon Tea Sentiments”
“Half Pint Heros”
Here are links to DCWV and Waltzingmouse Stamps – DCWV is a skecth challenge and Waltzingmouse is a blog party (my first to particiapte in)!

OK, down to biz…
I used the adorable WMS Stamp Sets: Nutcracker Sweet and Paris Nouveau, a border from K&Co., the turquoise print paper from Graphic 45, three little Christmas themed button embellishments from Dress It Up Button Co. and seam binding from Paper Loves Glue’s Etsy shop in Candy Apple Red, I also gained inspiration on the tying of the bow from Kim (Paper Loves Glue).
Truth be told, this is not my favorite card but I love, love sketch and I’m forever a fan of red & turquoise together.
Loving this sketch! Go check out what the Design Team and the “Mischief Makers” did with this sketch, you’ll see the variety! Waltingmouse Sketch Challenge Site
Victorian Frippery stamp set from WMS (the large flourish from the collection) to stamp the outside edges of the card and the background on my sentiment “tag”.
