Waltzingmouse Stamps - Blog Party

On the 17th of each month, Claire and the team at Waltzingmouse Stamps have a blog party.  I have never played along before but when I saw Claire's post on February 1st I decided to try and meet the deadline and play along - it's "Looking Forward to Spring".

For me, Spring is all about the rebirth, renewal and regrowth.  I think this is especially seen in our gardens /plants at this time of the year so I focused on flowers for my "Spring" card.  In our family there are also lots of birthdays in Spring!.
Supplies:  Waltzingmouse Stamps - Frame it set & Free Spirit Boy Set
pp kissing booth - Basic Grey, Pink cardstock - Penny Black, 
kraft cardstock - Anita's/Papermania, tea dye 
distressing ink, blending tool, Papermania white pearls, 
ribbon from MemrieMare - Etsy, heart pin - Making Memories, 
corner punch - X-Cut, threading water border 
punch - Fiskars, stamping press - Fiskars, guillotine - Purple Cows, 
foam dots, tombow roller adhesive and  detail cutting scissors.

Initially I was going to colour the flowers with copics so I created a mask to stamp the flowers repeatedly in the same "bunch", but in the end I decided to paper piece with different shades of patterned papers from the Kissing Booth collection.

I am also entering my card into this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

It is full of pinkness! and was inspired by Fancy Schmancy Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World.
You still have time to get a card made before the party kicks off this evening - all the details are here!.  Everyone is invited.... dig out your WMS stamps and get inky!
 Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you have a great day/weekend.
