Waltzing Birthday Throwdown...


Today is a Bank Holiday in the UK so I had a bit of time to play along with the Colour Throwdown challenge as well as the Waltzingmouse sketch...


I dug out some old K&Co papers that I haven't used in ages and found some that matched these colours nicely (in the process I realised {once again} that I have WAY too much dsp in my stash... But it won't stop me buying more...{grin!}). Here's what I ended up with:

I used a few WMS sets on this - Labels 2, Ovals and Eat Cake (for the sentiment). The sketch is under there somewhere... I just got a bit carried away with layers and embellies lol! The centre piece was created using a Labels 2 shape, then a fancy tag cut with Basic Grey card, then an oval stamped with a coordinating stamp using Charcoal ink, then a So Saffron scalloped oval and finally a Whisper White oval with the sentiment stamped in Taken with Teal. I added some So Saffron ribbon and some PTI buttons with a punched butterfly to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!
